Rev’d Dr Arabella Milbank Robinson


The college is delighted to announce that it has selected a new chaplain and dean of chapel. She will be the Rev’d Dr Arabella Milbank Robinson, currently associate rector in the parish of Louth in Lincolnshire.

Arabella went to school in Nottinghamshire and Virginia, USA, and then to New College Oxford where she was awarded a first in English and modern languages. She later studied for a PhD in medieval English literature at Emmanuel College Cambridge; and has also completed an MPhil in Christian theology with a dissertation prize from the faculty of Divinity.

Arabella will join the college in September ready for the next academic year, taking over from Hugh Shilson-Thomas who has served the college so well over the past 14 years.
