Our Annual Conference brings together senior trust leaders and decision makers with policy makers, researchers and leading providers in the sector to exchange ideas and develop impactful relationships.

Like our members, CST is  a charity aimed at promoting the public benefit of education. We believe school trusts make lives better for children because they bring schools and people together in organisations with a strong, single purpose: education. This encourages the sharing of expertise, ideas, and resources to give pupils a better start in life.

Our conference helps bring the sector together, and sponsorship helps keep the event as affordable as possible for schools to attend and benefit from.

In 2023, we welcomed over 1,300 delegates from trusts across the country, 95% of whom were senior leaders. More than two-thirds of delegates were school trust chief executive officers or other C-suite roles.

  • Showcase your services to senior decision makers within the school trust sector
