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!

PAST MUSIC PERFORMANCE STUDENT

Rio-Leanna Donkin is a previous Wilberforce student who completed BTECs in Music Performance, Music Technology, and Drama, alongside her English and Maths. With her sights set on a singing career, and some amazing performances already notched up.
