Tom Ashley

Assistant Director, Inclusion, BEP

Tom is the Assistant Director for Inclusion at BEP. Tom works with the Inclusion Team to support Birmingham schools in all aspects of the significant area of school improvement. Tom’s first few months at BEP has allowed him to see a host of inclusion approaches, all making a positive to the life chances of Birmingham’s young people.

Prior to moving to BEP, Tom was a secondary Headteacher at two urban mixed Comprehensives.  He led one out of Special Measures and the other through re-brokerage. Prior to that Tom held a series of senior posts improving schools and academies in the West Midlands. Inclusion has been a vital element of those roles so he feels the chance to work to improve this across the nation’s second city is both a pleasure and a privilege.
