Jonathan Smart - Executive Headteacher

I have worked in Primary Education for 20 years working at 4 different schools in the West Midlands. I have previously been Head Teacher for 12 years before taking on the role of Executive Head Teacher at Excelsior Trust.

During my time as Head Teacher I have been and am still an LLE and I have also been an Ofsted Inspector in the Midlands area. I have supported colleagues through the Professional Partners initiative and also informally throughout my career. Also, I am currently President of the Birmingham Branch of the NAHT.

I love the challenge of being Executive Head Teacher for Excelsior as I fully understand the power and positive impact schools working effectively together can have. It is a privilege to undertake this role and I love working with my colleagues across the MAT to secure a better and brighter future for all our young people.  Excelsior has the right vision and values that I believe bring about significant change in all of our MAT schools.
