I am now Chief Executive Officer and Accounting Officer of Excelsior Multi Academy Trust. Previously to this I was a Headteacher of 5 schools during 26 years of headship. During this time I have been an NLE, SIP and was an Ofsted Inspector practising in the West Midlands.
All of my schools have been in deprived areas of England and I have always endeavoured to provide an excellent educational setting for disadvantaged children.
Winning the 2015 National Pupil Premium Award for KS2 was a tremendous accreditation for all who have worked hard at our lead school - Parkfield Community School and for the vibrant, diverse and extremely deprived community in which the school is placed.
