Deputies and Assistant Headteachers Conference
The annual SWALSS conference for Deputy and Assistant Headteachers takes place over two days at The Grand Hotel in Torquay in May each year. As with all other conferences, this annual opportunity for hard-pressed school leaders to get out of school and to meet up with old friends, make new ones and to network is highly prized. The conference programme is put together by an active committee of SWALSS deputy and assistant headteachers and always closely reflects the current concerns and interests out there in our schools. Recent contributors have included Professor Barry Carpenter, Michael Townsend-Williams and Rhys Blair, the Paralympian.
