“A researching school is an improving school”


CTSN recognises the importance of being at the forefront of educational research. Research and Development is therefore one of the main activities of CTSN.

Conscious of the benefits of teachers being reflective practitioners, schools within the network each have their own well-established Research Communities.


These comprise groups of lively, enthusiastic and dedicated teachers at different stages of their careers involved in a wide range of Action Research projects.


These groups engender cross-curricular conversations where good practice is shared and also provide a vehicle for teachers to be reflective about their own classroom practice.


The impact of all of this is a heightened quality of experience for the students at the schools where innovation becomes common place.
