School Philosophy Conference, Thursday 16 March 2017, 2pm-6pm, Cranleigh School

Cranleigh is delighted to invite colleagues to this special subject conferences for teachers. The aim of the School Philosophy Conference is to bring together teachers and others with an interest in the teaching of philosophy in schools, to share ideas and experiences, to learn from pioneering work going on in this area and to strengthen links between those who believe that education can be enriched by adding thinking to the curriculum.

The event is open to all who share an interest in school philosophy, whether at primary or secondary level. This includes teachers of Philosophy, Religious Studies, and other subject specialists who are interested in using a philosophical approach to their area of specialism.  The conference will feature an update on the proposed new GCSE Philosophy along with keynote addresses, workshops and an exhibition, as well as opportunities for networking.

Keynote Speakers are Professor AC Grayling and Profession Angie Hobbs, who will be speaking on “Why Teach Philosophy” and “Bringing Philosophy to Life” respectively.
