Rob Campbell (Headteacher, Impington Village College, Cambridgeshire) and Tom Sherrington (Headteacher, King Edward’s Grammar School, Chelmsford) from The Headteachers’ Roundtable are our guests at the next Leadership for Learning Supper Seminar in June.

The Headteachers’ Roundtable came into being in October 2012 after a tweet invited headteachers unhappy with the current trajectory of governmental reform to a meeting at the Guardian offices to discuss alternatives. A set of principles and a website showcasing them was created as a result of this first session. From that initial gathering, an article ensued which led to the rapid expansion of Twitter followers – 1,000 in the first day to over 8,000.

The group is now developing a full alternative curriculum model and has met with a range of political leaders and representatives. Join us to explore: - what should be the nature of the curriculum and how it should be assessed, - how policy might be shaped and influenced from within education, - what tools social media offers for shaping and influencing policy and practice.

Headteachers taking matters into their own hands and pressing ahead with a grassroots reform movement, determined to build support and consensus around an alternative vision of what education could and should be. Guardian Education, February 2013

Supper Seminar: 5 – 7pm, Thursday 6th June 2013. Room GS5 , Donald McIntyre Building, Faculty of Education.
