Why Visit

For the past eight years, the Schools & Academies Show (formerly The Academies Show) has been the leading education policy and best practice event designed to support school business management.

Given the complex nature of the schools system, we want to ensure that all types of schools continue to benefit from the talks, seminars, exhibitors and networking opportunities at the show.

This is why the Schools & Academies Show will continue to deliver the most senior of Government speakers and association leaders from across the education sector. Our CPD-certified seminar content and best-practice workshops will remain completely free, and we’re working to make it easier for visitors to attend the sessions and meet the exhibitors they are interested in.

The Schools & Academies Show is the very best place to receive industry-tested practical advice, guidance and solutions to help you run your school and:

  • Meet 200 leading education suppliers, innovators and solution providers
  • Attend the live Hot Seat and ask your questions to the experts and get involved in debates about the future
  • Network with Government officials discussing key policy issues and trends
  • Join your colleagues from across the country in our many other CPD certified theatres, all chaired and delivered by schools experts
  • Find products and services for school improvement, with innovations that have helped schools deliver outstanding education being demonstrated on the day
  • Share best practice with your colleagues from all types of schools, academies, and the wider sector in the Networking Zones

Come together with the country’s education community to discuss the future of education in the UK.
