Thursday 7 and Friday 8 July, Wellington College, Duke’s Ride, Berkshire, Crowthorne, RG45 7PU

The 12th Festival of Education will take place at Wellington College between 7-8 July. It will host over 200 leading speakers and over 5,000 attendees from the world of education.

It promises to be one of those Festivals we talk about for years to come as we plan to deliver more than ever, defining and evolving the education debate to ensure we continue to lead, stimulate, discuss and showcase what is vital for the future society.

At the heart of the Festival is an understanding that learning should be inspiring, engaging and fun. The Festival is no ordinary education event for teachers – from challenging debates to expert orators, and renowned headliners to making new friends and long-lasting connections, the Festival of Education is where those who inspire find their own inspiration.

Attend both days for £50-£175. Attend one day for £30-£100

We’ve curated a fantastic range of sessions over the two days of the festival. Join us for one session, one day, or both days!
