Radisson Blu Senegal ocean view 1280x960


The AISA School Heads Retreat is a new offering from AISA that was initiated in response to feedback from Head's of Schools who were seeking a forum where they could connect, share and learn together. The inaugural SHR2016 was a great success which has inspired us to make this a permanent feature of our annual programme.

The SHR is strictly open to Heads of Schools only and we encourage all member schools to attend this unique event.
