Y9A & 9B trip to the Royal Courts of Justice:

RCJ

On Monday 30th Janaury 2017, pupils from Year 9 had a unique opportunity to visit the Royal Courts of Justice in Strand, London. The purpose of the visit was for the pupils to gain an understanding of the British Legal System and in particular how courts operate on a daily basis. Pupils were given an opportunity to have a tour around the Royal Courts of Justice and thereafter, engaged themselves in a pre-planned educational workshop, which included acting out a criminal mock court case in an actual court room. Pupils had the opportunity to dress up and act out roles as Barristers, Solicitors, Clerk & Judges!  The trip was organised in partnership with The National Centre for Citizenship and Law. This trip also enriched their Citizenship and Social skills and taught our pupils the importance of respecting British values and its democracy.
