Research Schools Network

Since September 2017, The Blue School has been designated as one of thirty Research Schools in a national network across England.  We have secured funding to boost the quality of teaching and learning in the region through better use of research evidence.

We are titled "West Somerset Research School at The Blue School, Wells" and have initially prioritised our efforts in the West Somerset Opportunity Area.  We are now aiming to work with schools across the whole of Somerset and beyond to develop a programme of support and events to get more teachers using research evidence in ways that really make a difference in the classroom.

Already in place is a full programme of training and events.  For full details about this work, please visit our website and to find out more about The Research Schools Network in general please visit their website.
