The Schools & Academies Show is firmly established as the main event for all involved in the business of education and managing schools, staff and pupil outcomes.
Launched in 2011 in response to Government policy, the show has now rebranded to better reflect the nature of the education sector, and to allow us to continue to grow our senior school’s audience. The show brings together thousands of members of school leadership teams to hear the latest policy and best practice from Government departments, unions and teaching associations as well as to network, share ideas and to source new suppliers, find cost-saving innovations and new systems to support their schools.
Attracting hundreds of exhibitors each year and over 30,000 professionals since its launch, this show continues to expand to serve education with our impressive exhibition covering everything from Business & Finance to Healthy Eating & Sport. The exhibition attracts decision makers from Academies, Maintained, Free, Independent and Special Schools, all looking to connect directly with organisations displaying their latest innovations, products and services. We look forward to seeing you at the show!
