This years' theme:

Education: The Greatest Show on Earth


The business of managing a school or trust is challenging, skillful and rewarding - working on what seems impossible to create a magical experience keeping students and staff at the heart of everything you do.

No matter your job title, working within education requires you to have the trust and focus of an aerial artist and the resilience and coordination of a juggler. You keep the plates spinning, positively impacting the lives of future generations and striving for improvement. Whether you are walking a tightrope, fire fighting, jumping through hoops or celebrating and applauding everything that is great about your setting, you are the ringmaster keeping the show on the road. 

Join us in June for the 10th School Business Management Conference where we will celebrate Education: The Greatest Show on Earth.

The conference will be a mix of keynote sessions, interactive workshops, networking and a lively exhibition. It is open to anyone involved in the running and managing of a school or trust:  Administrators, Finance and HR Professionals, School Business Managers, CFOs and COOs and everything in between from across the North East and beyond.
