The Preston Teaching School Alliance are committed to creating a research culture to which all can contribute, using the wide and growing expertise within our schools. Strong evidence-based learning impacts positively on teaching and learning and pupil achievement. We are currently working collaboratively with a number of primary, secondary schools including cross phase projects.

R&D Working Party

We have a Working Party made up of interested school leaders who meet to discuss current research ideas on pedagogy and reflect on how these can influence practice within our schools.

Research and Development Action Research Projects

We are currently promoting a number of small scale Action Research Projects in individual schools.

Our SLEs are developing dialogue amongst subject leaders in both primary and secondary settings to share ideas for development and research opportunities.

Higher Education links inform, support and invigorate the teaching in our Alliance schools
