Maidstone Magistrates Court Visit

On Friday 7th February Year 12 vocational students attended Maidstone Magistrates Court as part of their Rights and Responsibilities Unit.

Students were given a tour by a Magistrate who explained who would sit where in the Court and what each person was responsible for doing during the process.

Students saw a variety of cases from shoplifting to driving whilst under the influence of drugs. They were then instructed by our guide as to what the sentencing guidelines were for each case.

After leaving the Court students had some lunch before returning to school to write up what they had seen during the procedures.
