The Audience

The Summit is attended by school leaders from academies, maintained and independent schools, and from all phases, across the North East and across the country. A previously sold out event, we expect 500 school leaders, senior academics, business professionals, Local Authority senior staff and other leading figures in the sector to attend.


In 2023, we welcomed an audience of over 500 school leaders from across the region beyond to hear from a fantastic lineup of speakers.
We were joined by The Children's Commissioner, Dame Rachel De Souza, Professor Steve Peters and Professor Stephen Gorard for their keynote speeches/ address'. We were also joined by Gillian Keegan, the current Secretary of State for Education who sat down with the Chair of Schools North East, Colin Lofthouse for a fireside chat.
