Blackburn Central High School at Burnley Crown Court


Crown Court

Last Monday Miss Craig and Mrs Jowett took a group of Year 10 Blackburn High School students to Burnley Crown Court to take part in a court room experience.

This tied in with the crime and punishment scheme of work students are currently following in Religious Studies. They learnt how a court room runs and how a defendant in court is tried.

The students had two very strong teams; the defense, represented by Sami and Abuzar, and the prosecution by Kasim and Amjad.

The Judge was Hashim, who did a fabulous job controlling the court. The rest of the group played the roles of the witnesses and jury.

The closing statements were very persuasive and we came to a verdict of NOT GUILTY.
