Who should attend? 

Now in its fourth year, the Bryanston Education Summit has quickly become 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, and this year pupils also, as the academic year develops, and we move beyond a Covid-compromised world.

Working again with our media partner, The TES, our theme this year is: ‘Putting pupils at the heart of a changing world’, and we have brought in speakers who are going to address some of the biggest issues facing teachers, pupils and school leaders today. There will be three strands: creativity; wellbeing; teaching and learning.

  • Mark Finnis will be talking about restorative practice.
  • Daisy Christodoulou will talk about what we know about student learning in the pandemic, and what needs to happen next.
  • Oliver Caviglioli will be discussing the benefits of dual coding.
  • Ben Sparkes will be considering the original creation of number.

There are many other speakers confirmed, including Michael Rosen, Bradley Busch, Kate Clanchy, David Weston, James Shone, Natasha Eeles, Chloe Mills and Alastair Creamer, and each will be engaging in debate, through presentations, panels, and informal conversations, raising questions and seeking solutions.

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 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.
