Newcastle Research School at Walkergate

Led by Walkergate Community School, which operates as part of the Newcastle East mixed multi Academy Trust (NEAT), the Newcastle Research School at Walkergate will receive £140,000 funding from the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) over the course of three years from September 2019 as part of its Research Schools Network.

The EEF is dedicated to helping break the link between family income and educational achievement. Through its Research Schools, the independent charity aims to collate evidence-based research which will help to boost the quality of teaching in schools across the UK.

The Newcastle Research School at Walkergate will become a regional hub for monitoring and assessing the impact of different teaching methods and strategies implemented at schools in the North East.

Projects highlighted for assessment by the EEF will vary in scope and complexity, but will all come back to the core theme of impact and how staff, pupils and communities might benefit from improved resources, training and infrastructure.
