About Us

Launched in April 2003 by MA Education, the independently owned specialist education publisher, part of the Mark Allen Group, SecEd has developed a loyal readership in the 20 years it has been publishing.

Whether it be articles, podcasts, webinars or face-to-face events, we deliver best practice, practical, advice-driven, research-led and case study content aimed at the amazing school leaders, teaching and support staff working in secondary education.

We offer an open access website, weekly ebulletins, an award-winning & in-depth podcast, half-termly webinars, and regular best practice events.

SecEd prides itself on being a positive and constructive voice for teachers and school leaders working in secondary education across the UK.

Our writers – many of whom are practising teachers and school leaders – tackle a range of issues, including policy and legislation, educational research and pedagogy, classroom practice, leadership, inspection, CPD, pastoral care & safeguarding, edtech, curriculum delivery and so many more areas of interest to secondary professionals and practitioners.

SecEd Best Practice: In-depth articles, many written by practising school professionals, published every week during term-time. Our guiding principles dictate that all articles must be practical and offer useful advice, examples, ideas and guidance to schools.

SecEd Blogs: The latest comment, analysis and opinion from key educationalists, teachers, school leaders and the SecEd editorial team.

SecEd News: The latest news developments relevant to your practice and work in schools, but tackled from a best practice and in-depth viewpoint.

SecEd Bulletins: We deliver the latest education news, best practice, blogs and more to your inbox free of charge: www.sec-ed.co.uk/register

SecEd Podcast: Our hour-long episodes offers best practice, advice and ideas across a range of issues relevant to secondary school leaders, teachers and support staff. Each time, we chat to a panel of experts, many of whom are working in schools, offering practical advice to our colleagues across the country.

SecEd Webinar: We host six webinars a year similarly focused on best practice advice, tips and guidance for secondary schools and each featuring a panel of 5/6 experts working in and with schools across the UK.

SecEd Events: Our regular face-to-face conferences, including our annual Pupil Premium National Conference in March, continue to draw hundreds of professionals every year and offer practical and interactive workshops and keynote presentations.
