About Us


Charles Dickens Research School

Share on:

Charles Dickens Research School works collaboratively with schools in South London and the South East to bring education research to life, by joining up theory and practice.

Charles Dickens has a track record of evidence informed practice and of working with schools to use research to secure the best outcomes for children, both academically and through their creative, social and emotional development. We have particular expertise in curriculum development, pupil premium, supporting pupils with autism and feedback and marking.

We are currently leading projects across the region, in conjunction with London South Teaching Schools Alliance, to support schools in using evidence to tackle teacher workload and to promote pupil wellbeing and emotional intelligence.

We build bridges between schools and academic research through:

- Disseminating recent findings in educational research in our monthly newsletters
- Providing training to support schools to understand EEF guidance reports and apply the findings in their contexts
- Special events to bring researchers and teachers together, such as LondonEd
