Described as “the Hay-on-Wye of education”, and now entering its sixth year, The Sunday Times Festival of Education is an exciting, inclusive event which really has something for everyone. The Festival continues to attract many of education’s most forward-thinking advocates, practitioners of change and policy makers, and for teachers it has become a “must-attend” educational event.
Hear from over 200 influential speakers including: Andrew Adonis, Angela Lee Duckworth, Michael Wilshaw, Sebastian Faulks, AC Grayling, Alain de Botton, Alastair Stewart, Carol Dweck, Christine Blower, Claire Fox, Julian Cope and Ken Robinson.
Walk away with new ideas and a renewed excitement for education
This year, you can expect contributions from both ISC and RSAcademics, discussion and debate around creativity in the classroom, the changing impact of technology, how we can better support students with SEN, and more. In addition, exciting, interactive workshops and camouflaged learning activities will entertain and educate learners young and old.
Collect valuable CPD hours
More and more schools and colleges are seeing the CPD value of the Festival and now send groups of teachers, senior leaders, support staff and, in some cases, their entire staff. In a time of possible resistance to new policy and change, the Festival will see staff return highly motivated, inspired, challenged, and full of new ideas to improve their teaching.
Testimonials from previous Festival attendees:
- “It is probably the most cost-effective CPD I’ve done in years” – Sir Mark Grundy, Executive Principal, Shireland Collegiate Academy

- “If you ever have the opportunity, I would urge you to attend the Sunday Times Festival of Education.” – Neil Hopkins, Headteacher
