Students Gain Insight into Life Behind Bars

A group of our sixth formers attended a one day conference in Manchester on Thursday 28 November as part of their A Level psychology studies.

During the thought-provoking event entitled 'Life behind bars,' the audience of 200 were asked if they thought prison works and what might happen to prisoners once they have been released.

Proceedings opened with a discussion about the workings of the modern British penal system. Later several ex-prisoners talked about their own experiences behind bars - some were lifers out on licence others had been wrongly convicted.

Our students then had the opportunity ask them questions about the effectiveness of prison as a punishment and the successes and limitations of offender treatment programmes following first-hand experience of these processes and systems.

The trip was a great success and it helped the students get to grips with their forensic psychology unit.
