Mock Trial Competition

On Saturday 21st November Miss Smith took thirteen Sixth Formers and 1 Yr 11 student to the Inner London crown court at Southwark to participate in the Citizenship Foundation Mock Trial Competition. This is a national competition which gives students the opportunity to take on the roles of barristers, witnesses, clerk, usher and jury. They prepare two cases which are then presented before a real judge in one of the many court rooms in the crown court. Our teams performed against three other London state schools in three separate rounds and meanwhile nine other schools also participated in this heat. Our students won all three rounds but did not score enough points to be one of the final two teams to go through. The boys participating were Michael Williams, Sean Munn, Cameron McGeekie, Sheldon Lobo (barristers) Ed Murray, Alex Exact, Kieran Mcfarlane, Micah Tunkara (witnesses) Joe Diver (usher) Jack Roffey (clerk), Fransisco Reyna, Callum Lawlor, Johan Lesley Valentine, Tommy Luke (jury). It was a brilliant experience for all students helping them to gain an understanding of the legal and human rights and responsibilities underpinning society.
