Back in 2005 and 2006 Gary Wilson came to Islington to speak at our conferences on boys’ achievement; sharing his knowledge and experiences. Anybody attending these conferences will have fond memories of the vibrancy of his presentations and the impact he had on their practice.

Gary is returning to Islington to deliver a ‘master class’ on the issues around boys’ achievement and to share practical strategies both old and new to keep pushing boys to fulfil their potential.
