2024 delegate feedback

"This was a very well organised and run conference. The range of speakers was excellent and really supported me in some of my own thinking. I genuinely left feeling it had been a very worthwhile event."

"I thought the conference was excellent (and it was my first time)."

"It was good to hear from others who have a real understanding of educational leadership and understand how incredibly challenging it is but through the sense of how important it is to support each other in rising to meet that challenge."

"It was my first ASCL conference and didn't disappoint - great venue and food but more importantly, the keynotes were interesting and sometimes inspirational and the variety of workshops was impressive!"

"The day was excellent, speakers were varied in what they were presenting on and I left with good ideas, some challenging some supporting my ideas/schools steps."
