The HMC, IDPE and AGBIS School Bursaries Conference

Transforming the lives of young people


Supported by GSA, IAPS, ISBA, ISC


Wednesday 29 January 2020

BMA House, London

Conference directors: Elisabeth Anderson and Simon Jones


HMC, IDPE and AGBIS are committed to increasing bursary provision in independent schools and through our fourth School Bursaries Conference, we aim to both challenge and support the sector to embrace significant change and address both affordability and sustainability.

With more schools delivering transformational bursary programmes, this conference will deliver on sharing best practices and feature sessions on fundraising, marketing, recruitment and measuring success. Learn from the UK’s most experienced professionals, and have the chance to get involved in discussions on how to implement change.



The Conference Programme will include the following topics:


  • Putting transformational bursaries and experiences at the heart of the school strategy – why schools CAN afford to do it
  • Let’s make it easy – using similar language and systems across schools to attract the right candidates
  • Deploying available finances and effective fundraising to provide more bursaries
  • Building networks and partnerships with local and/or state schools to deliver transformational experiences
  • Pastoral care and the importance of focussing on the child
