What is the Schools & Academies Show doing in relation to COVID-19?+
The Schools & Academies Show London 2020 has been cancelled in order for the team to focus on delivering an even better Schools & Academies Show Birmingham 2020, which will be taking place on 18th & 19th November at the NEC.
We appreciate that with the school closures, adapting to a new way of running your school or organisation and subsequent re-opening of schools the sector will have had an extremely busy time since March.
Therefore, the November date is positioned at a time when we hope to be back to some sense of normality and will provide the sector with a much needed opportunity to galvanise and reflect on how your organisation, the sector and the country can look towards the future and a successful academic year.
We have included all information regarding the event and COVID-19 on our website here.
