'Legal Eagles' Visit Prep 6

Prep School Outings/Workshops

On Friday 25th January, we were fortunate enough to have a visit from a group of local Magistrates, the 'Legal Eagles’. They ran a series of workshops with the boys in Prep 6, looking at law and order in our community as part of our Citizenship topic.

We had a thoroughly informative Q&A session and subsequent quiz looking at some age-related restrictions, for example, laws including the legal driving age, the purchase of certain goods and the age of legal responsibility in the UK (just 10 years old!). The boys also took part in a mock trial of a shoplifting case so that they could see how the legal process works, and understand the different roles of people involved in such actions.

It was a most enjoyable and informative experience all-round and really opened the boys’ eyes to the rights and responsibilities we have in our society, and the penalties for those who break the Law.
