Rethinking the future of Independent Education

8 June 2021, 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

This week an extraordinary panel of leading figures from the sector gather to discuss the prospects for British independent schools in the 21st century. This is a great opportunity to meet the heads of three of Britain’s most well-known schools – St Paul's, Winchester and Westminster, plus a former head of Harrow.

With the press asking 'Are private schools really worth the money any more?' this is a unique opportunity to hear what the sector's leaders think. 

Topics covered will include:

  • Is boarding still relevant?
  • Are children learning the right things?
  • Are universities /  employers now discriminating against the privately educated?
  • How diverse is the sector?
  • Is the current state/private polarisation sustainable?
  • Who is private education for?
  • Will British schools remain global leaders?
  • Many schools are now 'brands'. Do overseas satellite schools offer the same education?
