HMC (the Headmasters' and Headmistresses' Conference) is a professional Association of heads of the world’s leading independent schools.
HMC's schools are individual and distinctive offering parents a rich variety of options when choosing the right education for their child. But, at the heart of every HMC school is a commitment to the benefits of an holistic educational experience: academic excellence coupled with a strong emphasis on pastoral care and exceptional co-curricular opportunities.
Founded in 1879, the Independent Schools Association (ISA) is one of the oldest of the independent schools’ organisations. Since 2014, they have been a registered charity and promote charitable objectives. ISA provides professional support to its 470 member Headteachers. Staff of our Members’ schools benefit from high quality training opportunities and access to a wide range of membership services, while pupils enjoy an extensive programme of local and national Sporting, Arts and Cultural events.
