Annual Conference: 'Exploration and Insights' 14 - 16 April 2020 - Cancelled
Wyboston, Bedfordshire

14 April 2020 - 16 April 2020

Cancellation Update - Statement from the Chair of the MA

Together with NANAMIC, we are delighted that our 2020 Annual Conference is being held at Wyboston Lakes Resort, Wyboston, Bedfordshire

Our conference theme Exploration and Insights is intended to offer delegates an invaluable opportunity to explore new ideas in a lakeside setting designed to maximise face-to-face learning and sharing. As an organisation we are responding to the financial challenges faced by many schools by restructuring our conference packages. Delegates are able to select from a competitively-priced range of cost-effective options - from half days and single days to the full conference experience - we are particularly excited to offer our innovative "middle day" option offering a full day of classroom-focused workshops, with optional evening BBQ and quiz which we hope will prove very attractive for our teaching members. Delegates, and their partners, should note that the venue also offers a superb range of leisure facilities and a relaxing spa which are all available at an additional charge.
