Prinethorpe Welcomes New Archivist Jo Wong

Jo Wong has joined the Foundation as our new Archivist.

Jo gained a Masters in Archives and Records Management in 2005, and then worked as an archivist at the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust from 2005 to 2010. Her prior archives experience also includes working at the BP Archive based at Warwick University and on a digitisation project focusing on the Industrial Revolution in Birmingham, as well as voluntary work at Warwickshire County Record Office, Cheshire Archives and Local Studies.

While bringing up her young family Jo retrained and set up her own business teaching parent and baby classes and combined this with working in schools over a number of years. Most recently she has been working in the higher education and charity sectors on projects including an online directory of UK biobanks and a mental health resource website.

Jo is passionate about increasing the awareness of and access to archives and is very much looking forward to helping the whole Princethorpe Foundation community engage with its wonderful heritage. She is always happy to be contacted with any queries about the archive collections and the history of the Foundation schools, and also looks forward to hearing from members of the community who have records or memories of their time at the schools that they may wish to share.

Jo can be contacted at archives@princethorpe.co.uk.
