Research and development is our passion
One of our priorities is to closely monitor national and international research.
Our aim is to enrich young people's education
The Beechwood Teaching School Alliance has Research and Development at its heart. We closely monitor national and international research to ensure any new developments with proven benefits are immediately disseminated across all schools within our alliance.
We are also well placed to coordinate collaborative original research tailored to the challenges faced by students in our partnership schools across Southern England. An active Research and Development culture can be found across all the schools in our Alliance. As a result, the Beechwood Teaching School Alliance is building a unique platform of evidence-based findings that can be used to drive innovation in pedagogy and practice and enrich the education of the young people in our schools.
Our Research Commitment
The Beechwood Teaching School Alliance is committed to playing a central role in leading, supporting and disseminating research. We achieve this by:
“Every school within the Alliance has its own objectives, but there are also broader lessons that can be learned from shared experience.”
Sue Marsh – Strategic Lead of Beechwood Teaching School Alliance and Headteacher of Beechwood Junior School
The challenge is in how to find a solution to each school’s unique pressure points while drawing on the evidence-based lessons learned elsewhere. By connecting schools within a wider professional research community, and by supporting school with their own enquiry and evidence evaluation, the Beechwood Teaching School Alliance can help schools to effect high-impact CPD and school improvement outcomes.
