Magistrates Competition

Magistrates’ Mock Trial

Courtroom drama was recreated at Burnley Magistrates’ Court on Saturday 17th March by 11 of Year 8 and Year 9 students representing Brownedge in the local heat of the Citizenship Foundation’s national Mock Magistrates’ Court Competition.

His Honour Judge Gibson presided over this year’s competition and although Bacup and Rawtenstall Grammar took the winning spot, students put in an excellent performance and were highly praised by magistrates and fellow competitors.

A brilliant team effort with students rising to many challenges during the day – well done! Looking forward to next year’s competition already…
