UK Schools


We carry out research into all aspects of UK schools, including Early Years, Primary, Secondary and Sixth Form.

We talk to school leaders, teachers, parents and pupils and we maintain our own Teacher Research Panel so that we can recruit teaching professionals to take part in our research.

Below are a few of examples of research projects in the UK schools sector. If you have a project you would like our help with, please contact us.
