joined: 5-Sep-1966 (SSGTSFB)

Avril Emslie was educated at the High School for Girls, from 1945 until1953, when she left to attend Bedford College, at the University of London. In 1956 she gained a special BSc in Mathematics.

However, it wasn't until ten years later that she joined the staff of the South Shields Grammar-Technical School for Boys, when the first school computer in the area was installed (and only the second to be installed in a school in the UK). She taught computer programming until her departure in 1970.
