Keynote Speaker: Sir Andrew Motion

This one-day IBSC conference on boys and literacy – specifically on programmes that promote boys' competency in and enjoyment of reading at all age levels – was especially rewarding for English teachers, librarians and reading specialists in boys' schools. We believe that boys' schools are uniquely positioned to be leaders in boys' literacy education, and this conference was an opportunity to share and celebrate exemplary practices.
