Robinson News

  • On Saturday, 20 September, Robinson welcomed the winners of our first ever essay prize competition for those in Year 12 of school to the College for a lunch and prize giving with Directors of Studies. There were two competitions this year: one a general essay prize for both Arts and Sciences and one a Medicine-specific prize. With over 40 applicants, the competition was fierce and the judges were greatly impressed with the overall standard of the essays. Our congratulations go to everyone who entered.

  • A memorial service will be held at 2pm on Saturday 28 February 2015 for Lord Lewis of Newnham, FRS, Founding Warden of Robinson College, Cambridge. Please indicate in advance if you wish to attend (see below).
