Research School

As one of the first five schools to become a designated National Research School, Kingsbridge Community College is working closely with the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) and Institute for Effective Education (IEE) to develop evidence based approaches to teaching and learning across the southwest.

The Southwest Research Schools Network will look to support schools in the region over the next three years by:

-       Encouraging schools across the southwest to make use of evidence-based programmes and practices through regular communication and events.

-       Providing training and professional development for senior leaders, teachers and paraprofessionals on how to improve classroom practice based on the best available evidence.

-       Supporting schools to develop innovative ways of improving teaching and learning and providing them with the expertise to evaluate their impact.
