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 opportunities, and our flagship national conferences. We also have some additional events within our School of PiXL Leadership Programmes, which are designed with specific school leaders in mind and address some of the most common issues.  Please do have a look at our Events Guide which includes all the events we are taking place this academic year. Our full events guide for academic year 2024-25 will be published soon – please click below for key dates so far!


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. It is a fantastic opportunity to network with colleagues, and we recommend our Raising Standards Leaders attend in person where they can. We have listened to feedback and our Primary and Secondary conferences will incorporate breakout sessions, so you can tailor your experience throughout the day to suit you. Our PiXL Post 16 conferences will involve high levels of interactivity and allow the opportunity to network with other KS5 leaders in sixth form and college settings. 

Each national conference includes a delegate handbook and accompanying resources highlighted on our linked agendas. 

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


Subject-specific Events

We run events that are tailored to specific subjects or issues and will give you a deep-dive experience. Some events are available as part of your membership, others are at an additional fee.

We want to equip your senior and middle leaders, and class teachers, to be a voice of influence in your setting and beyond.

There are many things to speak up on in education, many of which your colleagues will feel passionately about, some
of which they have no time to think about – and yet without that time, they may lead towards the endless operation of ‘downstream’, without the necessary ‘upstream’ thinking.

We want to be able to think precisely and concisely about both, with meaningful data and research informing our next steps – and by pooling the wisdom of experts beyond and within our network.


Connecting RSLs  

We are keen to create connections between our members so that we can learn and share from each other. We do this at national conferences, through PiXL Specialist meetings, online networking sessions and The School of PiXL Leadership courses. We know that there is so much to learn from each other – that is the power of the network.

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. 


MAT Connect Conferences

We run specific events for Multi Academy Trusts. The event is for CEOs, Executive Headteachers and other senior leaders in Multi Academy Trusts. These meetings are designed to share ideas from across Trusts on a range of topical and important issues and to get the balance between both the evidence and research and then the practical steps that people have taken. Our intention is that you will leave not just with ideas and new thinking, but will also be able to network with others in the same role – across Trusts – and feel energised and empowered to continue to make a difference.

At the heart of every Trust is the knowledge, power and will to make a difference to every child, teacher and leader.  We are delighted to partner with you and stand alongside you in that endeavour.

  • 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.

    Headteacher, PiXL Secondary 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.

    Senior Leader, PiXL Post 16 school

  • 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.
