MHS Goes to Court

For several months now, a group of students have been preparing for The Magistrates Court Mock Trial Competition. The competition is part of the Young Citizens ‘citizenship experiences’ and helps to improve young people’s life skills, their understanding of the justice system and the legal system, and helps them to understand that the law touches every aspect of their lives.

 

The students were invited to attend a tour of Bromley Magistrates Court in February in preparation for the competition which was held on Saturday 9th March. We were able to gain valuable experience by seeing first-hand what a hearing and trial look like by sitting in on some courts while in session. The team of students have been working relentlessly and practicing their roles as magistrates, defence lawyers, prosecution lawyers, witnesses and defendants in order to win their case. They were also lucky enough to be given some advice by former Addington High School student Mark Fraser, who now works across the country as a barrister, the day before the competition.

 

On a chilly competition day, after meeting at the ridiculously early (for a Saturday) time of 07:50, we embarked on our journey to Bromley. Once through security, we were lead up to Court 7 where we would be fighting for our place in the regional heat. Our prosecution fought bravely against the defence team from Ravensbourne School, but despite their valiant effort, there was just not enough evidence and the defendant was found not guilty. However, when our defence team went up against the prosecution team from Harris Academy Purley, a verdict of not guilty meant that we were successful. In all, there were five schools competing to go through to the regional heat and congratulations must go to Ravensbourne School who won that honour.

 

Every member of Team MHS worked incredibly hard and did us proud on the day. Many thanks to must go to them for giving up their Saturday, as well as countless after school sessions, and taking part in such a challenging, yet enjoyable, event.
