We believe in supporting schools as a valued, independent provider of research — where educators have easy access to comprehensive insights that can be seamlessly implemented in their setting.

Over the last 75 years, we have developed our expertise and specialised knowledge through a team of 100 qualified researchers, statisticians, psychometricians, economists and assessment experts to nurture long-lasting, trusted relationships with senior leaders, subject leaders, and teachers in schools in the UK.

Through regular, termly updates containing the latest and relevant information, the NFER Classroom Round Up newsletter has been carefully curated to deliver insights on key areas in education, including COVID-19 recovery, teacher recruitment and retention and classroom practice, as well as offering opportunities for schools to inform evidence by sharing their own views on the realities of life in the classroom.
