Jackie Smith
Assistant Head Teacher (Pupil Progress)
Jackie began her teaching career in 1990 in Merseyside in a large Catholic comprehensive school and joined Hulme Hall in 2003.

In post, Jackie quickly moved from being teacher of P.E. to being in charge of Girls’ P.E., then moved into the Pastoral system where she became an assistant Year Head; then Head of Year and Key Stage 4 Manager.

Jackie currently still teaches P.E. and is Assistant Headteacher (Pupil Progress). She is the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) and serves on the SLT. Jackie is also responsible for C.E.I.A.G. (Careers Education Information Advice & Guidance), Rewards and Sanctions, Attendance and Line Manager of the Pastoral Team and the Designated Safeguarding Officer (DSO).

Jackie’s teaching philosophy is simple: Show respect to gain respect; make a difference; strive to be the best you can be; start each day anew.

In addition to a love of teaching, Jackie also values her home life with her husband and two daughters. They like to escape to the family home in Donegal, Ireland – to peaceful sea views, fresh air and no school bells!
