Robin Hull, lic.phil. Dip. RSA
Robin Hull was born in Switzerland and grew up in an English-speaking family in the Zürich Highlands (Zürcher Oberland). After taking the Swiss Matura at Wetzikon Grammar School (Kantonsschule Wetzikon) and various GCE examinations (British university entrance examinations), he took a licentiate degree in German and English Philology at Zürich University and underwent training as a grammar school teacher.
He spent a number of years dividing his time between the Swiss army, rising to the rank of major, and working at his father's school as a part-time teacher and manager.
When his father, Dr. James Hull, retired from the school at the end of 1989, he took over responsibility for Hull's School with a view to building on the tradition of high educational standards which had been established over nearly five decades.
Subsequently Hull's School won more accreditations than any other private school in Switzerland and is now an affiliate of the International House World Organisation, a full member of EAQUALS (European Association of Quality Language Services), a bearer of the EDUQUA quality seal awarded by SQS (Swiss Association for Quality and Management Systems) and a full member of the Zürich Association of Private Schools (VZP).
Robin Hull takes a personal interest in all aspects of the school and maintains close contact with teachers and students, making a point of teaching a few hours whenever time allows.
In the year 2008 he handed over the management of the language school to a new team in order to focus on the college.
As a curator of the International Aldous Huxley Society he is actively involved in the study of literature and philosophy. He is married to Ieva Hull, herself a dedicated teacher of English and an accomplished linguist. Robin and Ieva Hull live in the Zürich Highlands and have four children.
