OSA’s Legal Eagles

We took two teams to compete in one of the Oxford heats of the Mock Magistrate competition. In total 26 students from Years 7-10 took part. They put in huge amounts of work rehearsing twice a week from December to March and then giving up a Saturday morning to compete at the Oxford Magistrates Court.

We were delighted that Max was awarded the prize for best Legal Advisor and that Ruby and Imaan were jointly awarded the prize for best witness. In addition the Oak Team were announced as the overall winners and will now compete in the Regional Final at Reading Crown Court in May.

A huge thank you to everyone who took part, especially to Katie who kindly stepped in at the last minute and also to Mr Birch who provided huge support at all the rehearsals.
