Headteachers & Deputy Headteachers

Why Should Headteachers and Deputy Headteachers Attend The Schools & Academies Show?

The Schools & Academies Show will provide Headteachers with the chance to network with like-minded peers, meet leading education suppliers, hear from leading policymakers and school professionals and learn from best practice case studies.

We understand that the role of a Headteacher can be very time-consuming, so having the time to source, meet and test out suppliers can often be an overlooked task.  By attending the Schools & Academies Show, Headteachers will have the chance to not only meet these requirements but benefit from the exclusive discounts and offers provided by suppliers at the event.

By registering for a free ticket today, all Headteachers will benefit from dedicated seminars and presentations taking place across the two days, scroll down to have a look at some of our key speakers and must-attend seminars.
