What The Good Schools Guide says
Since September 2016, Dr Richard Maloney MA (theology at St Andrew's) PGCE (Cantab), early 40s, previously head of Bede's Senior School. An alumnus of Latymer Upper School, Dr Maloney began his career in West Yorkshire. In 1997, he became head of RS and, later, head of sixth, at Chigwell School, during which period he completed an MA at King’s College, London. In 2006, he was appointed deputy headmaster of Sutton Valence. During his tenure there he became a PhD but left after three years to take up the Bede's headship - whilst still in his 30s. We described him at Bede's as 'A man of palpable energy - physical and intellectual - complemented by equal measures of compassion, dedication, ambition and vision'. He has transformed that school and become hot educational property.
