Who should attend?

The Annual Proprietors Conference is open to independent school Proprietors, Proprietor Heads and their teams, Senior Leaders of proprietary school chains, and those that support proprietary schools across the sector.

We are keen to ensure the government’s Brexit readiness fund is of benefit to as many of our members as possible. We are therefore also opening up the Proprietors Conference to include valuable support for all members’ schools.

This year’s conference will focus on the implications of Brexit for School Proprietors. As well as invaluable networking opportunities, we will provide expert briefings on how to prepare as a school, in conjunction with the Government’s Business Readiness Fund.
