Educated in Bedfordshire, Emily said. “I am incredibly excited to join the team at Northampton High. I believe passionately in the power of education in shaping the future of children. It is an honour to play a part in a child’s education and a responsibility I take very seriously.” She continued, “Leading the Nursery and Junior School at Northampton High is truly exciting and I cannot wait to get started!”
