Event Main Sponsor:

Our annual leadership summit is back for 2021 as a physical conference and we can’t wait for you to join us at St James’ Park for the ‘must attend’ leadership event in the North East.






2021-22 will be a brave new world for Teachers, Leaders and Students alike which will continue to evolve over time. This brings the need to reimagine provision, where school leaders can contemplate education priorities in a new light and consider bold, innovative solutions to persistent challenges.


Join us at Summit 2021 to rethink what is necessary, desirable, and needed for our region's schools and future generations.
