Who should attend? 

Now in its fourth year, the Bryanston Education Summit is now an established fixture in the educational calendar. Big enough to attract a wide range of speakers, but small enough to remain intimate and accessible, the Summit is unlike any other school-focused event in the UK. Each year is themed to reflect the shifting priorities of teachers, and educationalists, as the academic year develops, and as sectors undergo far-reaching change. 

Working again with our media partner, the TES, our theme this year is: ‘Aspiration: creating happier and healthier schools for a new decade’, and we have brought in speakers who are going to address issues related to this complex but inspirational area.

Speakers include:

  • Leading educationalist, author, and general secretary of the ASCL, Geoff Barton
  • Author and mental health campaigner, Rachel Kelly
  • The country’s first Professor of Social Mobility, Lee Elliot Major
  • Poet and teacher, Kate Clanchy
  • Leadership consultant and educationalist, Jill Berry
  • Leading headteacher of Reach Academy, Ed Vainker
  • Leading mental health campaigner, Dick Moore

Many more will be confirmed, and each will be engaging in debate, through presentations, panels, and informal conversations, raising questions, seeking solutions, and sparking constructive disagreements.

For anyone working in education today Bryanston’s Education Summit is unmissable. Come with an open mind, and take part in a stimulating day of professional development. 

What will you get from the day? 

The Summit offers exceptional value for money. Tickets are limited, and demand will be high, so we urge you to book soon. The speaker programme is hugely varied, and we hope that all those attending will get outstanding professional development from world-renowned speakers, all in one place. There will be a small selection of exhibitors offering you the opportunity to buy books written by some of the speakers, as well as a range of other resources to browse.

On arrival there will be free pastries and refreshments, an excellent lunch, and cake in the afternoon. But what you will take away will be intangible rewards: the notes written, the conversations enjoyed over coffee, the new friendships made, the advice given that solves an issue and saves you time.
