Emily Kempthorne
Assistant Principal
Student Welfare, Safeguarding and SENCO

Ms Kempthorne is the Assistant Principal for Student Welfare, Safeguarding and Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) at Bishop Young Academy.  Having graduated with a dual honours degree in Astrophysics and Biology, she decided to share her passion for Science and the natural world by choosing a career in teaching.  Over the last decade she has shared her knowledge with thousands of students from all walks of life, in urban areas such as Stoke on Trent and inner city London.  It was in London where Ms Kempthorne developed her career in academic rigour and pastoral care.  Prior to joining Bishop Young Academy, Ms Kempthorne moved to Yorkshire from London, where for the last five years she was as an Assistant Head in areas of both Curriculum and Inclusion.

As Bishop Young’s SENCO, Ms Kempthorne is based in the Personalised Learning Area called the ARK.  She is delighted to be working with our young people and enjoys supporting them in achieving their very best.  Ms Kempthorne is a firm believer in lifelong learning and is currently completing a Masters in Education in her spare time, having successfully completed her National Award for Special Educational Needs Coordination.  She is looking forward to collaborating and working with our students and families at Bishop Young Academy.
