Research & School Improvement services

Improving performance, engagement and achievement with teaching and learning

Every school has its objectives. Maybe improving performance, engagement or achievement levels? The challenge exists in how to find a solution to your problems or find an effective route to achieving improvements

We understand that by connecting with research, driving enquiry and evaluating evidence, your school can embark on a journey, planning effectively and ultimately meeting your CPD and school improvement goals.

Research - A professionally conducted investigation seeking a wider understanding of the world and "what works" to inform and shape your practice.

Enquiry - An individual, group or school-wide investigation seeking a solution to a specific aspiration or issue.

Evidence - A collective summary of information derived from research, enquiry and data.
