Ipswich Opportunity Area Research School

14 September 2017

The Research Schools Network project is a partnership between the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) and the Institute for Effective Education (IEE) to fund a network of schools that will support the use of evidence to improve teaching practice. There are now 22 Research Schools including 11 Research Schools supporting Social Mobility Opportunity Areas – following additional funding from the EEF and DfE announced in January 2017.

In the recruitment round earlier this year we were unable to appoint a Research School to support the Ipswich Opportunity Area and so we are now seeking a school to become a Research School to support the Ipswich Opportunity Area from January 2018.
