Heads Take Flight at ISA Conference

20th May 2013

Heads take flight

Over 100 Head Teachers gathered at The Grand Hotel in Eastbourne last week for ISA’s Annual Conference.

The theme was Growth and Resilience in Modern Leadership, and the event certainly lived up to its name with a range of stimulating speakers and challenging issues for Heads to consider.

ISA’s Chair Angela Culley opened the Conference with a speech in which she urged the Government to  make independent education affordable for all parents, by extending the Early Years Voucher Scheme.

Mrs Culley, who is Head of the Mead School in Tunbridge Wells, called on politicians to drastically re-think the funding of UK school places in a bid to give parents more choice over their children’s education.

Over the course of two days delegates attended a wide range of presentations and discussions, and enjoyed a spectacular kite flying competition on Eastbourne’s promenade.
