Town End Academy achieves Associate Research School Status.

Town End Academy was granted Associate Research School status in September 2019. 

Town End Associate Research School and Town End Teaching School Alliance are based at Town End Academy which is part of WISE Academies – a multi-academy trust of 12 schools that spans Sunderland, Newcastle and Northumberland. We are committed to providing a quality education to all of our pupils, based on the best available evidence.

As an Associate Research School our core purpose is to:

Translate the most up-to-date research in order to make it accessible, practical and applicable in the classroom

Provide evidence-based training and CPD for senior leaders, teachers and teaching assistants on how to improve classroom practice

Support the implementation of evidence-based practice by collaborating with schools and other partners

We work closely with Shotton Hall Research School, the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF), other schools and higher education institutions to support our aim of developing an evidence-informed community of schools and professionals.
