Magistrates Mock Trial
For weeks students in year 8 & 9 have spent lunchtimes preparing for the Magistrates Mock Trial competition. Students played the roles of lawyers, witnesses and court staff in order to present a defense and a prosecution for a case they were given. On Saturday Mrs Pickersgill took the team to Mansfield Court to compete in the local heats. The students won their first case with a 'not guilty' verdict and remained confident and articulate thorughout the competition. The result was incredibly close with only 6 points across the three school teams present. Our students were incredible and are keen to compete again next year with more courage and passion ready to win!
