Networking for Independent School Heads

The Independent Schools Association provides extensive networking opportunities for its member Head teachers. We promote Member support networks and fellowship regionally, nationally and internationally.

Local Networking

ISA members can network with other Headteachers in their local area through our well established regional structure.

Membership of The Independent Schools Association automatically brings you and your school into a network of colleagues in your area. Our seven regional areas each offer a range of events and activities, including meetings, training and pupil competitions.

Wherever your school is located, ISA is a close and supportive presence, ready to share knowledge and experience.

ISA Conferences

ISA’s twice yearly conferences give members the opportunity to network with over 100 independent school Heads from across the UK, while updating themselves on the very latest educational thinking and best practice.

ISA’s Annual Conference takes place in the Spring Term of each year, while our Autumn Study Conference – which is also open to Deputies and Senior Leaders – follows in November. The events also give Heads the opportunity to network with a number of leading schools suppliers in our conference exhibitions.
