Research Schools Network

In July 2017, the Education Secretary officially confirmed that The Blue School would become one of eleven new Research Schools, as of September 2017.  The Blue School has joined a network of twenty two schools across England who've secured funding to boost the quality of teaching in their region through better use of research evidence.

We will be titled "West Somerset Research School at The Blue School, Wells" and will initially prioritise our efforts in the West Somerset Opportunity Area.  We will then aim 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 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.
