To mark the 10th Anniversary of The Trust Network, we will be ‘Celebrating the School Estate’. TTN members and invited guests will enjoy a full day of networking and CPD with colleagues and specialists from the school estates sector.

We will reflect on the key developments that have taken place over the past decade and look ahead to what the future holds in terms of new school buildings; modern methods of construction; creating thriving learning spaces to improve engagement, cognition and learning outcomes; achieving Net Zero with our existing estates; professionalising the Estates function, and putting ‘GEMS’ into practice!
