On 1 February and 10 May 2019, at Harrow and Summer Fields prep school respectively, the International Boys’ School Coalition (IBSC) will host a conference for teachers new to boys’ schools and those aspiring to be master teachers.
The conference will bring together educators who have recently joined the profession and seasoned colleagues, to share best practice. The aim is to strengthen all participants’ contributions to their schools through pedagogical approaches that work especially well for boys.
To take full advantage of learning and reflection, the conference takes place on two separate dates. Delegates are invited to attend the first part at Harrow, and then to put into practice what they learn, before gathering for the second part of the conference at Summer Fields six month later.
Sarah-Jayne Blakemore, professor of cognitive neuroscience at University College, London, keynotes the November event. Other contributors include the independent commentator, education writer, and creator of the Learning Spy website, David Didau; Katharine Birbalsingh, founder and headmistress of Michaela Community School in Wembley Park; Neil Enright, headmaster of Queen Elizabeth’s School in Barnet; and David Faber, headmaster of Summer Fields School in Oxford.
