About Us


Blackpool Research School at St Mary’s Catholic Academy

Share on:

Blackpool Research School at St Mary’s Catholic Academy is an exciting development and part of the evidence-based journey that St Mary’s Catholic Academy has been on. We have supported schools at the forefront of making evidence-based practice the norm and Research School status is the natural next step for us.

As the Research School for the Blackpool Opportunity Area, our aim is to develop an evidence-based profession, empowering teachers to use accessible tools based on research evidence to improve outcomes for all pupils.

Our core purpose is to:

  • Share and disseminate the very best of evidence-based practice to schools and teachers across Blackpool.
  • Provide evidence-based training.
  • Host conferences and events
  • Support schools and work with Teaching Schools in the region
  • Develop interventions and practices that help improve the life chances of pupils.
