Year 6 Mock Trials

Perrott Hill played host for the annual Year 6 Mock Trials this week, where six local primary schools – Perrott Hill, East Coker, Preston, Ash, Hambridge and Chilthorne Domer – battled it out in a courtroom presided over by a team of real-life magistrates from the Yeovil Magistrates’ Court. The defendant in the dock was the fictional Terry Shepherd, who was being accused of graffiting the door of a local business, with each school having to present a case for either the prosecution or the defence.

The overall winners were Ash Primary, with Perrott Hill coming second and East Coker third. Adjudicating magistrate Mr Lindsay Wilson commended the level of confidence with which the children spoke, telling them ‘it takes real guts to stand up and speak in front of your peers, and I was really impressed by all of you.’ A special thank you to our Chairman Ms Mary Ellis and adjudicating magistrates Mrs Susanna Hanson and Mr Wilson.
