Jo knows all too well about the importance of role models, as she was inspired to study chemistry by Antonio whilst at Worksop College!
Jo gained a Masters and PhD in chemistry at The University of York and now works for the Royal Society of Chemistry and teaches at The University of Sheffield. She’s still in touch with lots of lovely Worksop pals, including Becky Hall (Derry 96 – 01) and Sheena Hayward (née Temple) (Shirley 99 – 01) who were bridesmaids at her wedding.
After leaving Worksop College, Antonio spent 11 years at Millfield School and is now Head of Science and Chemistry at Sherborne Girls School in Dorset. Keeping with the Worksop theme, he is married to Marion Osborne (SCR 95 – 97) and still meets up regularly with Chris Hooper (SCR 92 - 96), as he is just up the road at Dean Close School!
