The Bar Mock Trial competition is an opportunity for students aged 15-18 to gain an insight into the justice system by simulating a criminal trial. Students appear in real crown courts in front of real judges and are assisted in their preparations by professional barristers. The competition aims to help students develop their skills in logical reasoning and teamwork.

I would like to wish students from both schools great success in their endeavours. I am sure they have been working hard to prepare, and would like to wish them best of luck for the competition.
