With such a large student body, Hull College has the privilege of teaching and supporting students who hold claim to some amazing achievements in their everyday life.

Outside of their college life, many of our students take part and compete in some impressive activities and some are even International Champions, just like Harry Robinson.

Level 1 Public Service and Sport student Harry enjoys the support of Hull College to pursue his career as an International Champion in the world of Jet Ski Racing.

Harry has been racing competitively now for 2 years, following in the footsteps of his dad and brother, claiming many titles and trophies on his Kawazaki SXR 800cc Jet Ski.

The 16 year old can already boast 2 British titles and holds the positions of 3rd in Europe and 8th in the world.

But Harry’s proudest moment was being crowned International Champion in Florida back in 2016.

Sponsored by the likes of Saphire Racing, Jet Pilot, Mac Racing, Rhino Power and R&R Goggles, Harry trains 3 times a week in the Gym and makes the trip to Sheffield every Saturday for a full day of lake training.

Harry said, “That’s the biggest thing I’ve won so far but my plan in now to move on to compete in the World Championships as well as taking on the Pro Ski GP.”

A former South Holderness School pupil, Harry decided to study at Hull College as he hopes to join the Police Force and the Public Service course is the perfect option to start this path. Harry said, “My school told me that the sport facilities at Hull were great and that the academic side was also brilliant. The college has been very supportive and always allow me time off for travel if I am competing abroad, providing I make up the work of course!”
