28 GCSE Sociology pupils went to Leeds Magistrates Court to learn further about how the criminal justice system works.
Year 10 pupil Elisha Omodeinde said that “our trip to the Magistrate Court was a wonderful experience and it was remarkably helpful. Each part of it was interesting and played a piece in the puzzle of the Crime and Deviance topic of Sociology.”
Pupils were given an introduction to how the courts work and had the opportunity to sit in the public gallery whilst the trials were happening.
All pupils displayed great levels of respect and asked interesting questions to the Magistrates in the feedback sessions.
