Partnership Headteacher

Our two-day residential conference is now in its eighth year and is considered a key CPD, sharing and networking date in the diary for our school leaders. The event is designed and curated by our partners ensuring we provide our leaders with the right learning to inspire their thinking.

In times of change, now more than ever it is essential that school leaders have clear aims and philosophy, a vision for their schools and rise to the challenges our system presents. The Conference gives leaders a clearly defined space and time to think, discover, explore, share and rejuvenate with like-minded people from across the region.

Through a programme of internationally recognised key notes, quality workshop leaders and local research informed practice, we aim to support delegates to develop and clarify this vision.

Past keynote speakers have included, Matthew Syed, Maggie Alphonsi, Saeed Atacha, Sir John Jones, Steve Munby, Steve Radcliffe, Andy Buck, Mary Myatt, Estelle Morris, James Kerr, Laura McInerley and Alex Quigley.
