Area Representative:
Teresa Tunnadine, CBE

Teresa Tunnadine, CBE

 

I have been a National Leader of Education since 2006 and currently in my 17th year of headship at The Compton School, an outstanding mixed secondary academy in Barnet, North London. In 2012 The Compton was designated as one of the first 100 National Teaching Schools and leads an alliance of 23 schools and HEIs. I am now a Senior Partner for Challenge Partners, a national network of schools providing challenge and support for each other.  I have been an OFSTED inspector since 2012.

I am currently Vice Chair of the DFE Secondary Headteachers’ Reference Group, advising on a wide range of policies. In 2013, I received an honorary doctorate from Middlesex University for my contribution to the education system nationally and received a CBE for services to education in the Queen’s birthday honours. In 2014 I was elected to one of the eight Regional Commissioner’s Headteacher Boards advising on academies and Free Schools.

I am hoping to develop the Regional Representative role to support Teaching Schools in the East to collaborate  to provide professional development, ITT and School to School Support, to raise attainment across the area for our children. Linking schools is crucial so that all schools feel part of the network.
