New CEO Appointed for GLT

Ms Jennifer Smith has been appointed as the new CEO of the Girls’ Learning Trust (GLT).

Following a rigorous recruitment process by the Trust Board assisted by Perret Laver, one of the UK’s leading educational recruitment consultancies, Jennifer was selected from a field of outstanding candidates due to her significant strategic leadership and collaborative experience within the girls’ education sector. She will take up her appointment on 1 September 2019 and succeed Jane Burton who has been pivotal in forming and growing the GLT over the past four years and is now moving to a new role within the independent sector.

Jennifer brings with her extensive educational expertise across a number of local schools including being a former Deputy Head at Wilson’s School and is a strong advocate for girls’ education having been the Headteacher at Brighton and Hove Girls’ School, which is part of the Girls’ Day School Trust (GDST), since 2012. As a Board we believe that Jennifer has the necessary mix of expertise and commitment to continue the Trust’s journey in becoming a centre of excellence in girls’ education and we very much look forward to working with her going forward.
