Mock Trial

Citizenship Students win Mock Trial Competition

A team of Kingsway Park Citizenship students recently emerged as winners in the mock trial competition R v Davies, in which a student was accused of online harassment. The competition, organised by the charity ‘Young Citizens’, helps to improve young people’s life skills and their understanding of the legal system, giving students an invaluable opportunity to take roles in a court setting, enabling them to explore what careers in law may have to offer.

Students took the roles of prosecuting and defending lawyers, magistrates, witnesses, court officers and the defendant.  Kingsway Park High School emerged the winners after two rounds, defeating 6 other schools, and will be presented with a trophy and winners’ certificates.

Mr Leo Davies, Head of Citizenship, praised the students for their commitment and enthusiasm during the mock trial and added his thanks to Brabners LLP for its sponsorship of the competition entry fee.
