Year 9 students had the opportunity to visit Manchester Crown Court to take part in a mock trial, as part of a trip to enhance career aspirations.

Students and Ms O’Donnell at Manchester Crown Court as part of a trip to enhance career aspirations.

The students took on real roles from a courtroom, including a Judge, Barristers, Solicitors, Jury, Usher and Clerks. They were so impressive in the way they prepared for and argued their cases; there are definitely some future legal maestros amongst us!

The organisers commented on what a fantastic group of students they were and how impressed they were with their intelligent questions and level of maturity.

I didn’t think I would be interested in a career in Law but now I am definitely thinking about it.
