Strategies to combat boys’ underachievement in secondary schools


A brief outline of the situation facing boys in UK schools will be provided as well as the key reasons for their continued under-performance. A menu of strategies will then be proposed which help teachers to recognise and understand the problem as well as providing both students and teachers with remedies that support the learning needs of the boys in their schools.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
