Emma is responsible for the Art Department, alongside running the regular exhibition programme in the Viner Gallery.

Emma also teaches Games and enjoys getting involved in fitness clubs, including early morning circuits and the Coast 2 Coast challenge.

Working alongside a number of other staff, Emma has developed the Inter-form Activities within the Senior School. Annual competitions include the WGS Bake Off, Merchant Taylors’ Photography Competition and regular subject specific events.

Supported by the Merchant Taylors’, Emma researched the experimental use of cyanotype and alternative photographic processes within A Level Art & Design, which led to a number of workshops in local schools. She has also explored Printmaking techniques during evening courses at the University of Wolverhampton.

Since qualifying as a teacher, Emma has worked in schools in both the state and independent sector. She has been teaching at Wolverhampton Grammar School since 2013.

“I feel incredibly privileged to work as part of the Art department at Wolverhampton Grammar School, as our facilities and resources are outstanding. It is incredible to watch students grow as creative practitioners in their own right – developing individual skills that enable students to showcase their artistic talents both within school and the wider community.”
