Research and Development

We believe that children’s time at school is precious, as is the time of our teachers. To allow young people to fulfil their potential, whilst ensuring the workload of our profession is manageable, it is essential that our teaching and leadership is as effective as possible.

Rather that just relying on marketed ‘best practice’, or introducing rafts of new initiatives to solve problems, we look to use research and evidence informed approaches to shape all of our work with individuals, schools and partners within the alliance.

We work in close partnership with our local Research School Network to help put research into practice.
