Treasure Of The Month

2018 is the 10th Anniversary of the first male students arriving at St Hilda's College

 In 2006, St Hilda's Governing Body voted to change the College's statues and admit male students. In Michaelmas Term 2008, a mixed group of Freshers matriculated for the first time in our history.

Our first men's sports teams were established in 2008 and like the women's teams, they have gone from strength to strength. Members of the 2008 cohort remembered that they never did very well in Cuppers but did gain some memorable victories over big colleges. They spoke of their pride on hearing that in 2015 St Hilda's were Cuppers runners up in the 5-a-side football, Cuppers runners up in Men's Hockey and winners of 7s Cuppers in Rugby, which would have been 'unimaginable in our day'. Success continued into 2016 when our mixed Hockey Team won Cuppers and 2018, when St Hilda's won mixed touch rugby Cuppers.

At the start of Michaelmas Term 2018, we are delighted to welcome all our new students to St Hilda's College. Never miss a St Hilda's Treasure of the Month! Follow us on instagram.
