Fourteen Year 10 students from Blackburn Central High School accompanied Miss Ingham and Mr Farrell to the Greater Manchester Police Museum.
Through an interactive session students explored the history of crime and punishment through time, leading up to the contemporary justice system of today.
They were shown artifacts confiscated from real crimes that had taken place across the North West including confidence tricks, murder weapons and evidence collected from the Strangeways riot.
The students proceeded in to the cells and were told of one mans incredible feat of breaking out through the serving hatch!
In the afternoon, students took part in a contemporary trial based on a real court case. They took on various roles for the defense and prosecution and deliberated over the verdict.
Our students had a thoroughly enjoyable time with lots of students expressing an interest to work within the area of Law.
