The two days were packed with timely and meaningful educational research around inclusion and well-being, teaching and assessment practices, and identifying a positive means to incorporate ed-tech skills into our schools/classrooms. Learned so much from each keynote speaker and the roundtable discussions.

It was a pleasure to attend the Outstanding Schools conference in London on 28th February '23. The event ran very smoothly, supported by clear communication prior to the event and an easy to use app to register for different sessions. A noteworthy effort was made to get competent speakers to address themes that transcend the geopolitical framework of schools, which is refreshing. It was a pleasure to interact with educators from different countries and different frameworks, discussing a commonality in what we are all striving for.

A wonderful venue and considering most of us are still getting used to physical events again, you absolutely gave everyone a reminder of what we have been missing for 2-3 years. What you achieved here, you cannot replicate online. Fantastic job Hannah and the OSE Team. We all went home wiser, confident and positive from this conference.
