Town End Research School

The Research Schools Network (RSN) is funded by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) to support schools by developing evidence-informed practices and processes. Research schools aim to translate research evidence into tangible classroom practice and support schools in their region to make better use of evidence to inform teaching and learning.

Our collective mission is to break the link between family income and educational achievement by supporting schools, nurseries and colleges to improve outcomes for pupils – especially those experiencing disadvantage. Despite their name, research schools are not separate institutions; we are hubs based within schools. Our job is to build and strengthen networks of schools and help them access good quality, evidence-based education research and implement it in everyday classroom practice.

We work with teachers, school leaders and other partners to build on existing practice and target local needs.
