  • Mrs Emma Kerr

    Headteacher (on Maternity Leave from June 2017)

    Mrs Kerr joined Egloskerry Primary School in September 2008. She has a BSc (Hons) degree in Business and completed her PGCE teacher training at the University of Plymouth's Exmouth campus (Rolle College). Prior to being a teacher she worked in London buying programming for ITV but moved to Cornwall in 2005 to be closer to family and enjoy being by the sea.

    She has taught in a variety of schools, across all age ranges, in both Devon and Cornwall and also in Sydney, Australia, where she spent six months teaching and travelling in 2006. Prior to being appointed at Egloskerry she had been in and out of the school working as a supply teacher and was delighted to become a permanent part of the teaching team.

    Mrs Kerr started the Greenpower Goblin project at the school in 2008. She thoroughly enjoys delivering lessons through a cross-curricular topic led approach to learning. Mrs Kerr is now a Trustee of Greenpower Educational Trust. She has a keen interest in polar exploration, especially Shackleton, and has enjoyed sharing this with the children via her 'Antarctica' topic work. She is a member of the Geographic Association Early Years and Primary Phase Committee and regularly writes articles for publication.

    She lives in Boscastle and enjoys cycling, walking and surfing around the North Coast. She is also a keen artist and photographer.
