Academy Conferences is based in the UK and helps students and teachers to approach education as a worthy end in itself. We do this by running Gifted and Talented Masterclass conferences for students and teachers in the UK, New Zealand and Australia, going beyond the curriculum to offer a connected and critical overview of academic subjects and the big ideas they examine. Our events are run in partnership with The Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion at Oxford University and are delivered by specialists in their field. This year’s Junior Gifted and Talented day is facilitated by Julie Arliss who is an international educator of gifted students.
