Jack is extremely passionate about improving children’s education and has relished the opportunity to teach and lead in schools across Sheffield, Derbyshire and Barnsley. Jack’s previous roles have provided him with a valuable opportunity to gather a wide range of invaluable experiences and skills in the improvement of education. These have been honed in significantly challenging educational settings, with a community background of extreme deprivation, multiculturalism and multilingualism. In his current role, by working with Trustees, the CEO, Directors, governors and Trust Academy leaders, Jack ensure that HCAT’s common culture and set of expectations/non-negotiables are consistently applied across the Trust so that children, staff and Academy communities benefit from excellent teaching, learning and effective leadership. As an SLE Jack is also one of the leaders of the Initial Teacher Training (ITT) course.
