Vice Principal: Pastoral

Patrick Durkin, B.A., M.A., H.Dip.Ed.

Patrick Durkin grew up in County Mayo in the west of Ireland. After completing his secondary school education in the early 1990s, he earned a B.A. (Hons) degree in History and English Literature, an M.A. degree in History (Hons) and a Higher Diploma in Education (Irish equivalent of the PGCE) from University College Dublin.

Patrick has taught in secondary schools in Ireland and in the independent sector in the UK for over ten years. He has also taught for nine years in Switzerland. He was appointed Vice Principal in 2019.

I enjoyed and value the college at Hull's school for its profound education and the incomparable location in the heart of Zurich.

Hull's School

Hull’s School not only pushed my international career goals, but during this period of my life, I connected with many fascinating and inspiring colleagues, who became very close friends and helped me build my professional network.
