Research Schools are funded by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) and the Institute for Effective Education (IEE). The new Research Schools are all recognised as leaders in bridging between education research and everyday classroom practice. They’ll use their expertise to support up to 1000 schools by:

• Encouraging schools in their network to make use of evidence-based programmes and practices through regular communication and events.

• Providing training and professional development for senior leaders and teachers on how to improve classroom practice based on the best available evidence.

• Supporting schools to develop innovative ways of improving teaching and learning and providing them with the expertise to evaluate their impact

If schools are interested in becoming involved contact Nikki Jones at

Opportunities and details of how schools can get involved will be published shortly, and throughout the year.
