ABOUT OUR GUEST:Evelyn Forde is Headteacher of Copthall School, a highly regarded girls’ 11-18 academy with a comprehensive and culturally diverse intake in North West London. She is the Vice President of the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL). As part of her role with ASCL, she is chairing a new network for BAME leaders in education, setting out to improve the proportion of school leaders from BAME backgrounds: currently only 3% of headteachers in the UK are. Having left school in the 1980s with no qualifications and disillusioned with an uncaring system, Evelyn returned to education in her 20s and, after joining the teaching profession, worked to champion diversity and inclusion and overcome prejudice on her journey to headship. Evelyn is winner of Headteacher of the Year award from the Times Educational Supplement 2020 and has just been awarded an MBE in the 2021 New Years Honours List for Services to Education.
