Planning for the most able students is far from easy; without adequate provision such students can underperform and become disenchanted with the education system altogether, but tailoring lessons for them risks ‘losing’ the rest of the class.
Academy Conferences has an established track record for enthusing and motivating the most able students, and offers a rare opportunity for students to be introduced to and engage with new ideas presented by internationally renowned lecturers.

Leading From the Front
Philosophical Foundations for Flourishing.
Aristotle, the teacher of Alexander the Great, wrote possibly the world’s first self-help book for happiness. At the beginning of the Academy headteacher’s conference in London Julie Arliss outlines the key philosophical ideas which underpin most well-being programmes. Aristotle’s insistence that happiness is not the same as pleasure, and that there are no short-cuts to happiness, are core concepts influencing the British government’s new assessment framework for well-being and flourishing in education. Resources and videos from the event may be purchased.
