Perse Research


perse-groundsAction Research at The Perse School

As part of The Perse School’s commitment to the role of research in enabling teachers to be effective practitioners, we ask all new staff to undertake an action research project in their first year at the school. The research focus will originate in their day to day teaching lives and is intended to have a direct impact on their own work and that of their department.

A departmental INSET meeting will be a natural point of dissemination but more extended projects can be shared at the local CamSTAR research conferences, held in July and October.
