Pupils win mock trial competition
A team of Lower Sixth pupils won the mock trial competition at Cambridge Crown Court, which was held earlier this week and saw them compete against pupils from Netherhall School and The Stephen Perse Foundation.
The pupils’ advocacy skills were impressive and they secured the acquittal of their client. The Perse team consisted of Ethan Abraham, Jack Brears, Iva Divkovic, Hugo Dugdale, Tom Harwood, Ollie Heeks, Elizabeth Hitti, Alex Jackson, George Lewin Smith, Tom Neuberger, Tom Pierce and Ella Thomson.
All pupils performed extremely well but special mention was made by the judge of George Lewin Smith’s cross examination of a prosecution witness and Tom Harwood’s impassioned closing statement.
