Focus on developing your leadership with the experience of a wide network of peers. Share your successes, explore strategies and have your thinking challenged. Our Leadership Conferences are a peer network for headteachers and their senior leadership teams to share experiences and embark on fresh developments in their school. We help you to explore possibilities and find the inspiration to enhance your whole-school leadership strategies.

In addition to ODST and ODBST schools, we have extended this invitation to schools who have indicated they have resolved to join either Trust, and our schools' trustees and advisers. We hope that this creates a useful group of colleagues to share our work. We would welcome being joined by deputy headteachers or other SLT members at any point in the day.

Please add the dates to your diary, and book your place online.
