I have been the Head Teacher here at Hill West for just over 15 years having fallen in love with the school on appointment as Deputy Head Teacher in 2004.  Before taking up appointment at Hill West I worked in other Birmingham schools, one located in Kingstanding and the other in Aston and gained a wealth of knowledge and experience working with the children and families in those communities.
