Events for heads and staff at independent schools

Attain supports the independent schools' sector through our annual communications strategy conference (previously Pressburst Live) held in May each year. We also hold additional events, such as our communications training day, Attain Inspire, and will be expanding our digital events offerings.

Building on the success of Pressburst Live, the Attain Conference is a communications strategy conference for Heads and senior staff focused on the challenges facing the sector in the year ahead: parental demands, political challenges, public perception, affordability, and greater accountability. The conference will be held at the Royal Geographical Society in London on Friday 21st May 2021.

To develop communications skills, improve creativity and highlight new ideas and thinking, we hosted a communications workshop day – Attain Inspire – on Tuesday 4th February 2020. The creative workshop day was held at Oxford Town Hall.
