Tuesday saw the fourth symposium of newly formed Research Leads Network. The event was hosted by the University of Cambridge’s School–University Partnership for Educational Research (SUPER) and focused on the question of creating and sustaining teacher enquiry networks and partnerships.
A highlight was hearing of Samuel Whitbread’s internal research publication Anthecology and the success of teacher-led research in that school. The Perse has its own extensive teacher-led research programme, which will culminate in the annual Research Twilight event in May.
The event also saw a date set for the inaugural meeting of the Research in Schools Learning Community. This aims to be an on going collaboration between research leads across the UK, organised by City of London School for Girls, Bedford School, Christ the King Sixth Form and Eton College.
