TSL Education and the Education and Employers Taskforce will be hosting a breakfast fringe event at this year’s Conservative Party Conference in Manchester on Wednesday 5 October.
The event will take place from 8.30am-10.30am in the Banqueting Room at Manchester Town Hall (outside the secure zone).
Confirmed panel guests include Graham Stuart MP, Chair of the Education Select Committee, and Dr Anthony Seldon, Master of Wellington College.
The discussion will consider the methods used by high-performing independent schools to ensure the best prospects for their pupils, and how state schools can benefit from looking at the ways in which independent schools engage with the private sector. The event will be chaired by Gerard Kelly, editor of the Times Educational Supplement (TES).
