Education Conference - Your strategy to ensure a sustainable future

25 April 2018

Our next Education Conference, Your strategy to ensure a sustainable future, takes place on Wednesday 25 April 2018.

At a time when independent schools are coming under ever greater scrutiny and facing a range of challenges including affordability, the impact of Brexit, threats to their charitable status and the potential loss of business rates relief, there is a need for clear strategic planning to ensure a sustainable future.

We are delighted to be joined by Barnaby Lenon, Chairman of the Independent Schools Council, who will share insights about trends in the sector.

We will also consider various strategic options, such as merger and collaboration, going co-ed and overseas projects during a thought provoking Panel discussion and a legal overview. Our guest Panellists include Bob Ukiah, Chief Operating Officer at the Royal Grammar School Guildford and Andrew Lewin, now Training Director at the Boarding Schools’ Association and formerly Head of Development at Salisbury Cathedral School.
