OPS 2015: what a success!

“Thank you for organising such a brilliant conference. On a personal level I found it thoroughly stimulating, and I enjoyed speaking to, and sharing experiences and ideas with, new acquaintances from a variety of schools.

“On a more “global” level I left armed with inspiring information and ideas to share with both my colleagues and my students – starting with Year 7 boys on the first day of the new term!”

OPS 2015 delegate and grammar school German teacher, North Yorkshire

Thanks to all our speakers and delegates who made OPS 2015 such an enjoyable and stimulating event.

We were delighted to have such a diverse group of teachers join us from schools up and down the country:

  • 104 delegates attended across the two-day meeting. 82 joined us for OPS 2014.
  • 75 per cent of the secondary school teachers attending were new to OPS.
  • 42 per cent of the secondary school teachers attending represented the state sector.
  • 38 independent schools were represented at OPS 2015.
  • Several longstanding members of the Society were present, including one delegate who has been coming to OPS annual meetings for the past 50 years.
  • Our target regions remain the North East and South West of England, and Wales: spread the word and come along next year!
