About the SBS School Business Network

We began this network as School Business Managers had expressed a desire to meet to establish a strong supportive network locally where they can discuss current issues, share best-practice, and offer an understanding ear for the unique challenges that they face in their diverse and ever-changing roles. 

Never fear if you didn't attend our previous date. Each session has a self-contained structure and agenda, designed to provide insight, topical debates so that our delegates will leave information to apply in their day-to-day roles. 

Refreshments and pastries will be provided!
