Visitor Day Conferences 2016 and Consultancy

School leaders attend our one day conferences from all over the U.K. We have had delegates from all corners of England, including Cornwall and also from Scotland. Many schools have sent members of their senior leadership team to multiple conferences and some have sent their new leaders each year.

We have delivered our 'flagship' whole school improvement conference; 'Achieving and Maintaining outstanding,' to well over 500 secondary schools leaders nationally during the last four years since the first in 2012. 

With a hugely positive feedback we then extended the range of our conferences last year to include 'Securing High Attainment in Maths & English' and have attracted over 300 candidates since.

Following our success in 2015 in the National Pupil Premium Awards and our consistent success in closing the gaps for disadvantaged pupils, Andrew Betts, our Vice Principal, has spoken at national and local conferences on this subject and we have now added a further day on this agenda.

Dates are as follows

  • Diminishing the Differences (Pupil Premium) - 9th November 2016
  • Teaching & Learning Conference - 17th November 2016
  • Mindfulness in Education Conference - 29th November 2016
  • EBACC Conference - 1st December 2016
  • Progress 8 Conference - 1st February 2017
  • English & Maths Conference - 22nd February 2017
  • SEN Conference - 29th March 2017
  • Quality Cover CPD - 22nd April 2017

Conferences are delivered by long standing members of the senior leadership team (including the Principal) who have overseen and contrbuted to the improvement and continuing success and are held at our Academy on a normal working day. Delegates are given the opportunity to view the school and meet pupils and and members of staff.
