Each year, we offer a full suite of events per membership type that may be accessed by leaders at all levels of your school or college. These include subject-specific conferences, networking hubs, new school and guest school sessions, and our flagship national conferences. Currently, most of our content is streamed digitally through our PiXL TV platform, but we are returning to in-person events in 2022.

National Conferences:

These events are attended by hundreds of school leaders and are, for many, a highlight of the PiXL academic year. At these national conferences, people gather to hear the latest news on curriculum, PiXL releases and support and resource for the issues of the moment.

The national conferences are a blend of different approaches: some may be held regionally, others will be in Central Hall or The Oval, London, and some will be live-streamed digitally in front of a live audience in our PiXL satellite schools. For Secondary and Post 16 conferences, colleagues can gather in a local school and watch the national conference together. We provide gifts for each school, so that the viewing experience can be enjoyable as well as informative. We are grateful for all the schools who offer to host these sessions so that networking can happen and a sense of togetherness is felt.

Each national conference includes a delegate handbook and accompanying resource. Associates are able to explore some pertinent things for each school’s context in their subsequent meetings with schools. 

There are also many other different leadership events that you can access as part of your subscriptions, such as:

 

Digital Subject Conferences

We run seven subject conferences across the year for Secondary and Post 16 at no additional charge. These are: English, Maths, Science, Geography, History, MFL, Vocational and PE. We aim these conferences at Heads of Department, lead teachers and class teachers and promote a blend of leadership thinking, practical ideas and the latest research to ensure that your subject leaders are equipped for the vital job they do.

We have a Science Conference for PiXL Primary members in Summer 2022, as an event to complement our extensive science materials and support school leaders further.

Connecting RSLs  

At PiXL, we bring people together regularly to collaborate and share good practice and to support each other. If there is something that you want an answer to, or would like to discuss, this is the place. We look at timely issues, provide opportunity for colleagues from different schools to speak to one another, and, as ever, aim to be practical, such that you can have impact in schools. 

Festivals

We also organise digital festivals.

This year, we are holding our second digital Reading Festival for PiXL Primary, after its success in 2021.

These festivals contain well-known authors and speakers as well as experts in their field.

 

 

 

  • PiXL’s work is truly remarkable and has been a saviour and sanctuary of common sense and really useful strategies at a time of madness!

    Headteacher, PiXL Secondary school

  • For me, PiXL is a community of like-minded learners who have a moral imperative to raise standards and support children and schools to be better – who wouldn't want to be in PiXL?

    Executive Headteacher, PiXL Primary school

  • PiXL provides a reassuring touchstone, and never more has that been so important to school leaders. PiXL is populated with like-minded and motivated colleagues who give due thought and consideration about how to best approach the myriad of decisions school leaders take every day. I've worked with PiXL for 8 years now and every meeting leaves me inspired to try new ideas, reassured about things my school is doing well and resolved to continually do better for the young people in my school.

  • Post-16 support and resources are top quality — the adaptability of resources makes tailoring them to your students straightforward. The PiXL team are always open to suggestions and strive to ensure hard-working and innovative staff have a support base. They inspire teachers of all levels of experience.

  • I can honestly say this has been one of the instrumental factors in our success story. The ideas, resources and expertise, which has been so willingly shared by the whole PiXL team, has enabled our Sixth Form to continually change and radically improve. Every single meeting has been packed with fresh ideas and practical tips to help students thrive, both academically and also as a well-rounded individual.

    Headteacher, PiXL Post 16 school

  • PiXL is more than just a network of schools; it is a welcoming organisation, with highly experienced people, offering unparalleled professional support and CPD. PiXL will continue to improve the education system and culture of the schools, Sixth Forms and colleges who introduce and embed their strategies, as it has already.

    Senior Leader, PiXL Post 16 school

  • We have used PiXL in our personal development package, in our interventions, in whole school teaching and learning CPD and with our staff through PiXL Change. My respect for PiXL has grown and grown.

    Senior Leader, PiXL Post 16 school

  • PiXL has been a huge support network for our academies during these challenging times and has guided us, assisted us and provided us with resources to support our leaders, teachers and pupils. The PiXL team listen to us, take on feedback, ask us what we need and adapt their research and provision in order to suit all of our school’s different needs.

    Executive Headteacher, PiXL Primary school

  • As a member, PiXL provides our school with a wealth of professional development opportunities and high-quality resources for all areas of the core curriculum. Their approach of diagnosis, therapy, testing and revisiting enables us to easily identify children’s next steps on a one-to-one, small group and whole-class basis and then tailor our interventions and whole-class teaching to fill their gaps.

    Executive Headteacher, PiXL Primary school

  • The opportunity to work with such a strong, supportive, diverse team of highly–skilled professionals from across the country, as a PiXL family, has been a very valuable experience in developing the breadth and depth of my knowledge and skill–set, both as a teacher and a leader. Schools, staff and children lie at the heart of everything they do. The question on everyone’s lips is always: ‘What do schools need?’

    Executive Headteacher, PiXL Primary school

  • The beauty of PiXL is that you can pick and mix what you need and make it work for your school; you can be as PiXL as you want to be – it's a continuum.

    Headteacher, PiXL Secondary school

  • I trust my leaders with PiXL, PiXL leadership moves with the times and develops all tiers of leaders, ranging from my new middle leaders to my most experienced Heads of School. It has inspired them to question and challenge themselves, whilst holding their hand and supporting their next steps.

    Headteacher, PiXL Post 16 school

  • In a world of uncertainty, PiXL continues to show its true worth to schools across the nation. The integrity and humility with which the organisation works are quite unique in the world of education support and their drive to focus on the best for our young people is indubitable. Constantly offering support in key areas where the need is greatest, PiXL continues to be the greatest source of support imaginable.

    Headteacher, PiXL Secondary school

  • PiXL is completely driven by its values and moral purpose, acting solely in the interests of the young people in our schools by helping and supporting staff to choose the most appropriate, evidence-informed strategies and resources for their students. PiXL is an incredibly agile organisation in which the exceptional team is able to provide whatever support schools need in the interests of their students.
