Placing our Quaker values at the heart of our approach

Published Monday 28th of June 2021 12:00:00 PM

Leighton Park is delighted to announce the appointment of Shaun Dellenty as our Diversity and Inclusion Officer, after a rigorous selection process that involved student panels and interviews with senior staff. Although common in business and government organisations, such a role is rare in independent schools. True to our Quaker heritage, Leighton Park is keen to be a pioneer in this area and embrace our commitment to Achievement with Values, Character and Community.

As a leading values-led school, we want all members of our community to develop a strong appreciation for difference and equality, regardless of the subjects they choose to study. We see this as an important enabler to achieve our aim of forming young people of real character and confidence, with a determined desire to change the world.

Shaun brings a wealth of experience to the role, along with a national profile for leading diversity and inclusion initiatives in schools - having personally trained more than 90,000 teachers. Among other accolades,
Shaun has been recognised with the following awards and memberships:

• Top Twenty Diversity Champions in Public Life - Global Diversity List 2020
• Point of Light designation from the UK Prime Minister for services to education and anti-bullying
• Freedom of the City of London for services to diversity and inclusion
• Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts
