Headteacher Conference (Residential)

Noon, 21st March 2023 until noon on the 22nd March 2023

We took on board the feedback on the best way to host this event and although there was variation in some elements respondents were keen that we kept this event residential.  We hope that making the start and end time a lovely lunch will enable you to secure the appropriate support at school so you can attend fully. 

Key information:

  • It is residential, the sessions will be hosted at Burleigh Court and the overnight accommodation is next door at The Link Hotel
  • You will have some great input to reflect on your leadership
  • You will learn with colleagues and spend quality time with them
  • It will be an opportunity for you to STOP, THINK and RECHARGE

We will start and end the conference with lunch.  Day one will end at 4.30pm with dinner at 6.30pm.  Day 2 will start at 8.45am, with optional morning prayer at 8.30am
