    Partner event

    Time: 9:00 - 16:30

    Attend the most important education sector event in the UK.

We are pleased to invite you to attend the new Schools & Academies Show edition that will gather the most relevant education organisation, speakers and companies, centred on new education policies this year and beyond.

Building on the recent political changes and reacting to a new Government with a new agenda, the Schools & Academies Show returns to London ExCeL for its first show of a new decade.

Taking place across two days, on 1-2 July, and the only show strategically supported by the Department of Education and the Education & Skills Funding Agency, the show is perfectly timed at a pivotal moment post general election to provide visitors with an unrivalled opportunity to engage with a range of high-level speakers, meet-face-to-face with industry-leading suppliers, and take away practical advice and best-practice from policy makers, education pioneers and inspirational peers.

To help keep visitors up-to-date and knowledgeable in the face of an ever-changing educational landscape, the Schools & Academies Show will host 8 agenda themed theatres, each specialising on key areas shaping today’s education systems. This year’s theatres include:

  1.       Main Stage
  2.       School improvement Summit
  3.       MAT Summit
  4.       SEND Theatre
  5.       Business & Finance Theatre
  6.       Tech Theatre
  7.       Wellbeing Demo Area
  8.       Leader’s Town Hall

Each session is hosted by a renowned industry speaker, providing innovative research, case studies and ready to implement takeaway tips and techniques. New for 2020, every session will finish with 3 practical learning outcomes from the speaker or chair, aiming to provide visitors with valuable ideas and lessons which they can implement in their school.

As a sign of the show’s continual growth over the last 9 years, the London show will be welcoming Sir Ranulph Fiennes, one of our times greatest explorers as its first Celebrity Guest Speaker. Sir Ranulp Fiennes will be headlining the Main Stage on day 2, speaking on ‘Being a Resilient Leader’.

Chris Callaghan, Event Director from the Schools & Academies Show said “The consensus from our visitors and exhibitors is that each year the calibre of content and speakers coming out of the seminar theatres is outstanding. We aim to provide the highest quality of content that provides school leaders with vital updates and information that helps them to run their school and provide improved pupil outcomes.”

Alongside returning favourites, the 2020 edition will also be introducing ‘An interview with..’ feature, where we sit down with a key industry personnel and dive deep into their predictions for the future of our industry. We kick start this off at our London 2020 where we will be interviewing Amanda Spielman HMCI of Ofsted.

Registration for The Schools & Academies Show London 2020 is completely free for those working in schools, multi-academy trusts, charities and local and central government. Register today and be the first to receive the latest insights, initiatives and guidance on the changes shaping the ever-evolving education sector.
