AIMS 
The aim is to refresh A-level study, bringing higher aspirations to the academically gifted and renewed confidence to all levels of ability. All are anticipating an opportunity where this event will act as a catalyst that will help students move forward and raise their own expectations. We are driven by a powerful vision of this type of conference. Student-centric, focused on independent learning, it encourages students to develop a wider understanding of THE SUBJECT beyond school and invites them to move forward confidently. 
AUDIENCE 
Aimed at A-level students in years 12 and 13 the conference hopes to inspire students to go beyond their A-level course content. Four sensational speakers have been lined up for the day to provide a lively picture of THE SUBJECT.
