Why attend?

School leadership seems to be at a crossroads, with a focus on a self-improving system over recent years, and emphasis on leadership teams to ‘seize the system’. With a host of challenges facing the sector which will only be resolved if great leaders step forward, the evolving system presents both challenge and opportunity  for establishing excellent practice.

School leaders come together at the Show to celebrate, find inspiration and discuss the future of education, as well as the role they play in enabling all educators and learners to thrive.
