Hatfield Lionesses

The importance of a sense of belonging is at the heart of the famous Hatfield spirit. Once a Hatfielder, always a Hatfielder. Year on year our graduands go out in the wider world enriched by the Hatfield spirit to join the network of Hatfield alumni. Our alumni are an important part of the College community and, through the work of the Hatfield Association and the Hatfield Trust, they continue to make an active contribution to College life.

Ever since 1846, when it was founded, Hatfield College has produced a large number of alumni who have embodied the College motto "Vel primus vel cum primis" in their achievements, and as we approach 2018, and with it 30 years of celebrating female presence at Hatfield, this page is going to reflects on their accomplishments.
