St Anne’s College is one of the largest colleges in Oxford with 446 undergraduates and 300 graduates, and Fellows with research interests across all a wide spectrum of fields. The College originally came into being in order to help young women to more easily obtain a degree in Victorian Oxford, by allowing them to live in lodgings throughout the city rather than in a traditional college. It became a full College in 1952. The College strongly values its original ethos of trying to particularly encourage to the University those who otherwise would not have had access, and takes pride in its down-to-earth, friendly and independent-minded atmosphere.

Helen King read PPE (Politics, Philosophy and Economics) at St Anne’s College before embarking on a career in the police service, first as a uniformed officer and eventually as Assistant Commissioner in the Metropolitan Police Service. She became Principal of St Anne’s in April 2017.
