Mock Trial Competition

On Saturday, a team of 16 Year 9 students competed in the Mock Trial Competition at Reading Crown Court, accompanied by Madame Cervera together with some Sixth Form and Year 10 students. This was the first round of a national competition which was judged by serving magistrates. Kendrick’s team competed against two other Berkshire schools, with students acting roles such as lawyers, witnesses and magistrates. It was a stressful morning but the girls were thrilled to be placed first out of the ten attending schools and will be moving on to the next round of the competition in May.
