February 26, 2021
It was announced today that Andrew Halls will be retiring as Head Master of king’s College School during the summer term of 2022. During his nearly 14 years at the helm many exciting changes have taken place at the school, including the admission of girls into the Sixth Form, the completion of an ambitious building programme and the introduction of an International Baccalaureate stream. The school’s high standing does credit to the whole King’s community and we wish Mr. Halls every happiness in the next chapter of his life.
Oliver Glasgow (OK 1990) New First Senior Treasury Counsel
January 1, 2021
The Attorney General, Rt Hon Suella Braverman QC MP, has appointed Oliver Glasgow QC (OK 1990), as First Senior Treasury Counsel to the Crown at the Central Criminal Court with effect from 1 January 2021.
Mr Glasgow was appointed Junior Treasury Counsel in 2009, and Senior Treasury Counsel in 2015. He was made Queen’s Counsel in 2016. The title “Treasury Counsel” derives from the days when all Crown Counsel at the Central Criminal Court were instructed by the Treasury Solicitor. That procedure was changed in 1908, and since then the Director of Public Prosecutions has instructed the permanent counsel there.
Oliver competed in the 2007 Duathlon World Championships and in January 2020 he attracted national renown after he helped police take down a violent man who jumped from the public gallery into an Old Bailey courtroom after his friends were convicted of a gangland murder (Telegraph 27/01/2020).
As Old King’s Club Vice-President Tony Hein points out, it is a remarkable fact that Ollie and his father are the only father and son pairing to be workings as QCs contemporaneously.
