Our Aims

Through the Research Schools Network we aim to create a network of schools that will support the use of evidence to improve teaching practice.

The Network

Research Schools work with other schools in their network to share what they know about putting research into practice and help them to make better use of evidence to inform their teaching.

Partners

The Research Schools Network is a collaboration between the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) and the Institute for Effective Education (IEE).
