It is with deep sadness that we inform you of the loss of Emma Cairns after a long battle with secondary breast cancer.
Emma was a pivotal part of the Emmbrook School for 12 years and as Head of Drama was instrumental in ensuring thousands of children received exceptionally creative theatrical experiences.
She was an outstandingly gifted teacher, director and colleague and gave her time as generously as she gave her rich talent. Emma was a leading tutor of the Tirabad and Ufton Drama Summer School, which took students from Emmbrook as well as other schools and delivered transformative dramatic experiences over a week in the summer holidays.
Emma was a patient, warm and loving individual who inspired all of those whose lives she touched and will be greatly missed by us all.
Our thoughts, condolences and love go out to Emma’s daughter, family and close friends at this sad time.
Summer uniform will be in place until further notice.
