Why Attend

For the past eight years, the Schools & Academies Show (formerly The Academies Show) has been the leading education policy and best practice event designed to support school business management.

Given the complex nature of the schools system, we want to ensure that all types of schools continue to benefit from the talks, seminars, exhibitors and networking opportunities at the show. This is why the Schools & Academies Show will continue to deliver the most senior of Government speakers and association leaders from across the education sector. Our CPD-certified seminar content and best-practice workshops will remain completely free, and we’re working to make it easier for visitors to attend the sessions and meet the exhibitors they are interested in.
