Visit from the Lord Mayor of Manchester

 

On Monday 25th April, The Lord Mayor and the Lady Mayoress of Manchester, visited Wright Robinson College. Led by the Head Boy, Head Girl and student group, the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress were able to see the excellent facilities and opportunities on offer for the young people of Wright Robinson.

Y11 Mock Court Trial

A  number of Year 11 students recently took part in a mock court trial. In session 1 students were given two actual past criminal cases and had to work in groups as prosecution and defense. In Session 2 they met John Hera who is a current criminal defence lawyer.

After an informative presentation from John about his career to date and a Q & A after, students had to present their arguments to him for the prosecution and defense. He then gave feedback and suggestions on other things they could have used in their cases.

Students felt they learnt a lot from Mr Hera and it was a valuable insight into the life of a lawyer.

Teachers have joined in by displaying posters with details of their previous jobs. Form time has been about looking at different career sectors and watching videos of various job roles within each sector.

World Book Day- Thursday 3rd March 

Teamwork has yet again brought us all together this year in our celebration of World Book Day at Wright Robinson College. Everyone came together and made the day a huge success with so many different activities, competitions and events throughout the day. A huge thank you and well done to all our staff and students who participated in World Book Day this year. From Cruella Deville to Harry Potter, I don’t think we’ve ever seen such a range of different costumes. The effort all our students put in was phenomenal and we’ve never seen so many students get involved in dressing up. Our winners this year were especially chosen by Mr Haworth and the winners will each receive a book voucher to support them in their reading; either in their GCSE studies or their reading for pleasure. Well done Wright Robinson.
