Tony Jones

Senior Librarian and Archivist

As well as being the school’s senior librarian, Tony manages the school archive: a fully-functioning small museum for all things Emanuel. Tony also runs our alumni Facebook and Twitter posts and plays a key role in alumni relations and events.

A large percentage of our documents are now available to browse online, including the Portcullis magazine and many other useful documents including prize lists, drama cast lists and photographs (contact Tony Jones for password access to the archive). We are always looking for ways to develop our collection, so if you have a fascinating item at home do get in touch.
