Senior Leadership Structure

Enass Al-Ani (Principal)

I am thrilled to be the Principal at Small Heath Leadership Academy at such an exciting time for the school. Having worked in a range of diverse schools I understand the importance of community cohesion and working together to achieve the best for our students and the school. I started my career as a Maths teacher in an outstanding school and then moved to teach in a Boys’ school for six years where I became an Advanced Skills Teacher.  After that I worked in a challenging school as an Assistant Principal where I gained a wide range of experience that enabled me to progress to a Deputy Headteacher role in a very large school in the West Midlands before joining Small Heath. My passion is to provide all of our students high quality learning experiences that allow them to reach their full potential and equip them for the future.
