Our Year 12 team of barristers and witnesses performed brilliantly at this year’s Mock Trial Competition at Manchester Crown Court on Saturday 28th November. Eleven other schools took part in the competition and our girls won two of their three trials by quite a margin. They were very narrowly beaten by the overall winners of the competition. The judges all praised the girls for their effort and excellent professional performances.
The girls have worked extremely hard and have given up a lot of their time to practise each week and it was really pleasing to see them do so well in the competition and enjoy themselves doing so.
Well done to the team Jocelyn, Clemmie, Alice, Mahika, Rebecca, Stephanie, Robyn, Tokino, Kate, Lydia, Meredith, Eisha!

On Tuesday 3rd March, six Year 10s (Katie, Natalie, Nicola, Emily, Daria and me) and five Year 12s (Lauren, Eve, Ellie, Katherine and Kat) headed to Denmark to complete the Comenius project.

On our first day in Struer, we travelled to a town called Århus, during which we visited ARoS museum (with the amazing rainbow panorama and a colourful smoke room!), the university there (one of only two in Denmark) and then had time to shop and look around the city.
