The Bar Mock Trial Competition – Regional Finals

On Saturday 10th November 2018, 15 students from year 10 and 11 took part in the Bar Mock Trial Competition. This has involved a great deal of time and effort from the students who have used their enrichment time, lunchtimes, after school and even the holidays to get ready for the competition.

The Bar Mock Trial Competition helps young people understand how the law touches every aspect of their lives. By taking part in the competition, young people can improve their life skills- such as critical thinking and public speaking- whilst also gaining an insight into how the legal justice system works.

The students took on a range of roles found in a criminal trial-such as prosecutor, defendant and witness. They competed against schools from across the West Midlands in the actual court rooms at Stafford Crown Court.

The students had a fantastic experience which I am sure will stay with them for life. They were praised by both judges and members of staff from other schools.

UPDATE 22nd October:

All year 9 students should be in school unless they have been told directly to isolate. 

All students in year 7 will be in self isolation until Tuesday 27th October.

Students who travel on the A Star bus will also isolate until Tuesday 27th October

Students who travel on the Borland bus will isolate until 23rd October. They will be in school on 23rd October.

Further details have been sent to affected students via Edulink.

Many thanks,
