Key Strands

The Festival offers five quite distinct strands that you may wish to follow or dip into.

Early Years

Early Years is a crucial stage in any child’s cognitive and physical development. They set the stage for a child’s whole educational journey. Geared toward educators and parents, these dedicated sessions will be an opportunity to share ideas and learn about the latest developments in Early Years education.

Future Schools

Will schools still occupy physical buildings in the future? If so, what will they look like? How can we design optimal learning environments? We will be asking these questions and more as we take a closer look at the role design and architecture play in the schools of the future.


These sessions will explore why a bilingual education so important. What value does it bring to our pupils, and how does it contribute to making fully engaged, globally minded citizens? How do we provide the best bilingual education possible and what is good bilingual education?


An in-depth look at what we mean by wellbeing and why it is essential to holistic education. We will discuss how we can achieve it for ourselves, our pupils and their parents.

Mental Health

What can we do to promote positive mental health in ourselves and in our pupils? How do we know we have it, and what steps can we take to maintain it? These will be the key subjects of discussion in this series of workshops.
