Sir Anthony Seldon to speak at the upcoming Innovation in the curriculum conference at Forest

The Innovation in the curriculum conference, which will take place on Tuesday 3 May, will bring together some of the most innovative minds in education to discuss how through forward-thinking curriculum, schools are preparing their pupils for the challenges they are likely to face beyond the school gates.

In his keynote speech, Sir Antony will highlight the importance of developing and implementing innovative curriculum in schools. He is currently the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Buckingham, the only independent university in the UK with a Royal Charter, and is former Master of Wellington College and former Head of Brighton College.

Sir Anthony has also written the biographies of John Major, Tony Blair and Gordon Brown. He was knighted in the 2014 Birthday Honours for his services to education and modern political history.

The Innovation in the curriculum conference will also include contributions from Tim Jones, Academic Deputy Head at Sevenoaks School, Damien Stanford-Harris, Head of Japanese at Eton College, Deputy Head Academic at Forest School, Jonathan Mitchell, and Alistair McConville, Deputy Head Academic at Bedales School.

The Forest Conferences are held four times a year and bring together thought-leaders in education to share opinion, knowledge and experience. Recent conferences have featured polar explorer Pen Hadow and Mumsnet founder Justine Roberts.
