The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton revealed how she once harboured ambitions to become a headmistress when visiting St Andrew's School in Pangbourne, Berkshire, on Friday (November 31, 2012).

Middleton - who wore a tartan coatdress by Alexander McQueen - joined students for a range of activities and festivities.

She joined headmaster Dr David Livingstone to officially open a new artificial AstroTurf playing field before meeting members of school's current hockey team - a sport of which she is extremely fond of. Speaking to students about the school that she also attended, the Duchess said, "I absolutely loved my time here, they were some of my happiest years, which makes it so incredibly special to be here today. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that when I had to leave, I told my mother that I was going to come back to be a teacher. While that didn't quite happen, I was thrilled to have been asked back today on St. Andrew's Day." She hasn't really done too badly, has she? The well-respected private school now commands fees of around £15,000 a year. Middleton joined the school when she was four and left as a 13-year-old teenager, going on to attend the Marlborough College in Wiltshire. She was an exceptional sportswoman at Pangbourne, winning a slew of awards in both music and sport. Dr Livingstone confirmed that her high jump record from 1995 still stands, as does her team's record time in the 4x100 metre. Of the high jump measurement, deputy head Paul Outram said, "She broke it by a good margin and it has not been beaten since."

As well as Middleton, the St Andrew's School's former pupils include crime novelist John Le Carre, artist Howard Hodgkin and the historian and broadcaster Adam Hart Davis, according to The Telegraph.
