On Saturday 17th June, the Mock Trial team arrived at Nottingham Magistrate’s Court for a tense day of competition to decide who would be crowned national champions. The team have worked extremely hard all year and have given up a huge amount of time. They have all shown great personal growth as a result of the competition, developing their confidence and analytical skills. The team competed hard in two rounds throughout the day, in both cases successfully gaining more points than their opposing teams. They were required to make opening and closing speeches, cross examine witnesses and be familiar with the procedure in a courtroom, all of which they managed with ease!
The team eventually finished in 3rd place which reflects the energy and commitment they have put in this year – well done!
