We are delighted to welcome Tony Hartney to Bedales as part of our Civics series.
Tony Hartney CBE has been headteacher of Gladesmore Community School in Tottenham since September 1999 having previously worked in state-maintained London schools throughout his career.
The school serves a community with high levels of economic disadvantage. Families face numerous challenges in their daily lives and the children typically display low self-esteem and start the school with reading levels well below their chronological age. The school is a ten-form entry, mixed secondary community school, with a rich diversity of cultures and languages.
Tony’s talk will encourage thought and debate around issues such as social mobility and inequalities in education. Tony talks passionately about the impact of boarding bursary places for children from Gladesmore.
