Dr Richard Hawley talks to Downside pupils

Dr Richard Hawley from Royal Holloway, University of London, spoke to Downside’s Classicists about career opportunities.

Dr Hawley discussed a number of skills and personal qualities required for particular jobs, such as computer programming, law, marketing and financial services, for which studies in Classics provide excellent training. Dr Hawley had a large audience of listeners with pupils from the 3rd to the Upper 6th Form. Our Classicists participated enthusiastically in the discussion and the activities and Dr Hawley complemented the School on our pupils’ commitment and interest.
