What is Unity Research School?
Unity Research School is not a physical school as such, rather a team of experienced educationalists, passionate about education research and the evidence-informed strategies it provides. We are part of the larger Research Schools Network and are supported by the practices of the EEF.
Having Unity Research School as part of Unity Schools Partnership means that Unity’s schools have instant access to evidence-based information which they can use in the classroom to improve outcomes for pupils, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds. In an age of over-whelming amounts of pseudo-evidence, Unity Research School provides a solid and trustworthy source of information, proven to work in school settings and can help each school apply the evidence so that it is relevant to their setting and pupils’ needs.
The image opposite is our core team, but we have a much larger team – experts in their fields – drawn from some of our schools within Unity Schools Partnership and colleagues from organisations with which we work very closely.
“We are committed to championing great teaching at every opportunity and supporting the growth of evidence-informed practice in our region.”Andy Samways – Director of Unity Research School
