Research & Development

We are increasingly using a research & development ‘lens’ to evaluate the impact of our initiatives.

Our intention is to embed R&D in all aspects of our work rather than view it as a ‘stand-alone’ strand. We will publish research & development impact reports to share good practice and to promote the development of enquiry-based cultures in partner schools.

In order to develop such an enquiry-based culture, teachers at Stormont House School together with a number of colleagues from Clapton Girls’ Academy have embarked upon a 2-year Visible Learning programme based upon the work of John Hattie (see Visible Learning Tab).
