Bourne Academy head teacher Jackie Steel quits £105k a year role to become a portrait painter

Bournemouth Echo: Popular head teacher quits £105k a year role at academy to become a portrait painter Popular head teacher quits £105k a year role at academy to become a portrait painter

A POPULAR head teacher who has turned round a Bournemouth secondary school is giving up a six figure salary to pursue her love of portrait painting.

Jackie Steel, principal of the Bourne Academy, will leave in December, five years after she first took up the £105,000 a year post.

Her time at the helm has seen a complete transformation of the academy, which has benefited from a £10m rebuild, as well as a big improvement in results and standards.

She is now hoping to develop a career as a portrait painter. This is something she has always loved doing and she has previously exhibited her work in London but put it on hold to concentrate on her job at the Bourne Academy.

Jackie said: “I’ve made a decision to write myself out of the job because I feel my particular work is done and that schools need different sorts of heads for different phases.

“This school will be entering its next phase of going forward. “I’ve always felt that I wanted to really try and do something that was important for children’s future careers and then once I had done that try and do my own thing.

“The next phase will be an exciting phase, both for the school and hopefully for me too.”

She said she had developed the strengths of the old Kings High school, including its caring ethos and support for families in the community, and concentrated on providing strong leadership and developing a sense of aspiration amongst students.

She says the 20 minutes she spends shaking every individual pupil by the hand as they enter school is the most important part of her day and adds: “I would say my main job is to smile.

Everybody smiles at each other, they say good morning and that’s the underlying basis, a mutual respect that goes in tandem with the discipline atmosphere.”

Richard Knott, chair of governors, said the academy had thrived under Jackie’s leadership. “We needed a certain sort of person who was going to inspire and be firm and charismatic and we got that,” he said.

“Of course we would have liked her to stay but it’s not critical now the way it was four years ago. There’s a confidence here now, we’ve got momentum.”

“This has become a school that the community is proud of, that we’re proud of and where the staff are happy.”

You can bet it was in her contract: do five years, hit these targets, and retire on a cushy pension.

Nothing wrong with that; it is simply not the way things work in the state system.

It must discourage state head teachers.

Just a slight deviation from message; This head teacher is obviously talented.
My art teacher at Winton Boys was George Denham, now he was an artist.
Clearly there would be many teachers in our schools with exceptional talent, and given that we would like to encourage the educators of our youngsters to showcase their skills, why not put on an annual exhibition of their work.
I'm only talking about the arts, but it needn't be confined to that.
So come on Bournemouth Council, you've obviously got the resources at your disposal, why not make some exhibition space available and come up with something like an annual teachers art award.
Show us punters that you've got more on your agenda than attacking the dear old Noddy train at Hengistbury Head.

I bet you that part of the deal is the Pension . She getting out before they change the teaching Pension .Interesting point here the average teacher is paid under £30,000 a year so a head earns 3 times a year what a teacher earns ,the role of a head is to manage the school. We as tax payers pay for education if you want education to improve you need to reduce the number of student in the classroom and increase the number of teachers ?

I wonder how we could do this ?.....?...... .?

The pension was changed ages ago. Her age means she's unaffected.

When were the pupils told? Spoken to family earlier today and they had not been told she was leaving. As I previously posted seems to be held in high esteem but seems strange if this is the way you treat parents and pupils that have supported you through the good and bad times. family have been attending the school for last 7 years

Well done to her for following her passion but £105k a year for a head teacher does seem rather excessive considering schools are supposedly underfunded. No doubt her salary related government pension will ensure she won't have to sell too many paintings to get by.
It's an Academy Martin, funded by a private school. She was employed to do a job which she's done very well. Check your facts before insinuating stupid comments.

So are you under the misguided belief that Bourne Academy will not be taking part in strike action against the government in relation to pay & pensions then?

Yep!
The only reason it says ******* stupid is because (yes this is a lame excuse but is true) my friend had made me that twitter account, consider it somewhat a 'frape'.
However I do apologise if I may have given you any false hope on my intelligence being under the average level or someone of my age.
Oh and just to point out, despite my disliking for Jackie, she did have a smile on her face every day. I do also wish her the best in following her dream as a portrait painter.

Well that depends on which union the teachers are with, not who pays their wage. Seems like you need to check those facts of yours again Marty... Less time insulting grieving families maybe?

Bourn Academy are part closed tomorrow due to strike action, I rest my case.

As for insulting grieving families that happens to be something that I have never done nor would ever do but I fully realise that some idiots are always really keen to believe rubbish smears especially when they are UKIP related.
