Do you LOVE the idea of a career in the Police? 🚨

Last week a group of Year 1 Policing students visited Hull Crown Court to sit in the Public Gallery and professionally observe several trials. This integral experience enabled them to further understand legal procedures first hand and the reality of the criminal justice system. ⚖️

The students were able to witness many different cases which meant they could gain a wider perspective and develop their critical thinking process. 🧠

The visit also served as a great networking opportunity as they interacted between trials with different members of the proceedings, including a Q&A session with one of the Judges which led to getting hands-on with their iconic (and very expensive) horsehair wig!

RE-SIT SUCCESS 🎉

Congratulations to all of our students who got their results this week from their GCSE Maths and English re-sit exams in November! Whatever the reason for wanting to improve your grade, well done for your extra hard work on top of your further studies at Wilberforce and now you can focus on the future!

Some students gained fantastic results such as Jemima who gained a 7 in her English and a 5 in her Maths, alongside studying A Level Sociology, Economics and Level 3 Psychology. Jemima only moved to Hull from Nigeria last year and so has worked incredibly hard to study for the necessary GCSEs at the college alongside her other studies in order to gain this incredible outcome!
