A senior academic from Oxford University is planning to visit Queen Alexandra Sixth Form College in the spring.

Dr Helen Swift, Fellow and Tutor from St Hilda's College will travel to North Tyneside to present an award to Queen Alex lecturer, Steven Driver.

 Just before Christmas it was announced that Steven had won the very first Oxford University, 'Inspirational Teachers Award.' He was nominated by  Georgina Burt, a former student who is now studying at St Hilda's.

 Dr Swift will come to Queen Alex as the end of March to present Steven with his certificate.

The great news was also featured on the St Hilda's website. http://www.sthildas.ox.ac.uk/
