King Solomon Academy Year 9 pupils enjoyed learning about economics and language acquisition from two of St Hugh’s Career Development Fellows today, Wednesday 25 March 2015.

Dr Collin Raymond (Economics) and Dr Nadja Althaus (Experimental Psychology) were joined by the Principal, the Rt Hon Dame Elish Angiolini DBE QC who gave an inspirational welcome talk.

The 45 pupils also toured the College, experienced lunch in the Dining Hall and got the opportunity to quiz current undergraduates in a Q&A session.

We were happy to welcome King Solomon Academy for their fourth visit to College. Their head teacher, Max Haimendorf is an alumnus of St Hugh’s and in 2009, at 29 years old, became the youngest secondary school head teacher in the UK. Max received training and support as part of the Teach First programme.
