Celebrating the Identity, Integrity, and Ingenuity of Independent Schools



The education sector is united in the challenges it faces and those affecting independent schools in particular can be overcome through collaboration and the sharing of knowledge and practice.



Beyond being educators, schools are families and cultural foundations with an ethos and a mission to uphold. Maintaining and investing in this identity is a catalyst for growth and the key to success.



The stressors of the pandemic have accelerated the adoption of tools, practices and even mindsets. Schools rightly finding both global and local opportunities in this new-normal

A great event with a good spectrum of important topics and sharp and honest speakers, and the exhibition booths are fun to visit!
Excellent conference with plenty of useful themes and workshops, range of exhibitors, nice venue and catering (promotion of healthy eating throughout the day), meeting and networking with others. Extremely well organised. I left the conference very enthusiastic!
