Educational Visit to Burnley Courts

 

GCSE Citizenship students had the opportunity to visit Burnley Combined Courts this week.

During the visit the students recreated a criminal case in an actual court including taking all of the different roles ranging from the Judge, Clerk, Usher, Barristers both for the Defence and Prosecution, witnesses, jury members and the defendant.

The students enjoyed themselves immensely, gaining valuable experience of the British legal system which will help them in their studies.
