Our Research School
Huntington Research School is an exciting development and the natural next step for our school.
We have been one of the schools at the forefront of making evidence-based practice the norm in schools. As a Research School our core purpose is to:
- share and disseminate the very best of evidence-based practice to schools and teachers across Yorkshire and the Humber
- provide evidence-based training
- host conferences and events
- support schools and Teaching Schools in the region
- develop innovations that help improve practice in the classroom, so that all of our students get a great education.
We are very proud to take a role in supporting a school-led system as part of a dynamic network across the region and the country. Since 2015, we have led the Education Endowment Foundation RISE Project (Research-leads Improving Students’ Education), to work out what works to support schools to interpret and use research evidence, as well as taking part in innovative research projects, such as the King’s College London ‘Best Practice in Student Grouping’ project.
We work closely with organisations like the Institute for Effective Education and ResearchEd, alongside a range of higher education institutions and many forward-thinking schools and teachers across the United Kingdom, to support the aim of developing an evidence-based profession that sees teachers empowered by accessible tools based on research evidence.
