We can’t wait for you to join us for our annual leadership Summit 2024 at St James’ Park for the ‘must attend’ leadership event in the North East.

As school leaders, you work tirelessly to educate our region's young people to give them the very best start in life, despite the pressure, workload, and ever-changing landscape that you’re forced to contend with.
Well, now it's time to flip the script and EDUCATE WESTMINSTER, so that we can influence thinking to help create an education system where those difficult challenges are easier to overcome.

Despite what those with the most power might think, they can't know everything, and it's our job as a community to educate decision makers on exactly what it is that the North East needs, so they can finally align their policies with our priorities.
As a general election signifies change, the Schools North East Summit 2024 invites those in school leadership roles to come together and recognise the critical role they play in helping shape our region's education.

Educating Westminster

Let’s demonstrate the power of collaboration as we navigate the path towards a brighter future for the North East. Regardless of which party is in charge, we're going to EDUCATE WESTMINSTER and INFLUENCE THE DIRECTION OF CHANGE.

The Audience

Join Schools North East and your colleagues from both maintained and independent schools, and from all phases, across the North East and across the country. We also invite senior academics, business professionals, Local Authority senior staff and other leading figures in the sector to attend.


Last year, we welcomed an audience of over 500 school leaders from across the region beyond .
We were joined by The Children's Commissioner, Dame Rachel De Souza, Professor Steve Peters and Professor Stephen Gorard amongst others. We were also joined by Gillian Keegan, the current Secretary of State for Education for a fireside chat. You can read the full write up from the 2023 event by clicking here.
