Year 10s visit Museum of London and Royal Courts of Justice

Year 10 students spent a great day in London visiting the Museum of London and the Royal Courts of Justice, led by Mr Swash.

At the Museum of London Students spent time looking at original suffragette sources and clearly remembered a great deal from their studies in school.

After a picnic lunch they walked across London to the Royal Courts of Justice. Students were a little intimidated by the security checks, and glaring barristers, but they were brilliant, sitting in a real court and listening to a talk from a newly qualified barrister (who studied Business, Sociology amongst her A levels, and was clear that she knew several lawyers who had entered via BTECs) about what you can achieve. At least two of our Year 10s are considering law as a career.

We then had a tour of the RCJ, looking at judges robes and the criminal entrance. Then back to the coach for the long return journey. A really successful day, fantastic students and a great learning opportunity.  Well done all!
