The HMC, IDPE and AGBIS School Bursaries and Partnerships Conference - BMA House, London - Tuesday 8 March 2022

This conference is for heads, bursars, governors, directors of development and directors of partnerships or community engagement, from both schools with established bursary and partnership programmes, and those just starting out.


Education can provide genuine social mobility

With the pandemic leading to a widening gap in educational attainment between children from disadvantaged backgrounds and their peers, the independent sector must play a role in addressing educational inequality. Through developing successful partnerships and bursary programmes, independent schools can support more young people to achieve their academic and life ambitions.

Bursaries enable pupils from any background to access an independent education. This enriches the life of the bursary recipient and the entire school community. At the heart of any bursary programme are children who have the potential to transform the course of their lives – the founding principle for many independent schools.

Partnerships have become an integral and valued part of school life. There is a deep belief now amongst school leaders that partnerships are essential for school excellence, and many schools are now looking at ways to make their partnerships more strategic and impactful, to add value both to schools and their communities.

 Why attend?

HMC, IDPE and AGBIS are committed to increasing bursary provision and developing successful school partnerships. Through our fifth school bursaries and partnerships conference, we aim to support schools to embrace the urgent need for significant change and to consider how your school will play its part in driving forward social mobility.

With more schools delivering transformational bursary programmes and the surge in partnerships and community engagement, this conference will share best practices and feature sessions on strategic planning, fundraising, marketing, recruitment and measuring success. Learn from the UK's most experienced professionals, and have the chance to get involved in discussions on how to implement change and transform young people's lives.

The conference programme will include the following topics:

  • Putting bursaries and partnerships at the heart of your school's strategic vision
  • Practical tips for initiating or developing bursary and partnership programmes
  • How to combine bursaries and partnership projects to drive forward change
  • The role of governance in bursaries and partnerships
  • How to fund bursary provision and partnership projects
