Cake and Journal Club

This is an exciting opportunity for all staff to get together every half-term over tea/coffee and cake to look at and discuss evidence-based research, with a particular focus on its implications for classroom practice.  Each half-term we look at different aspects of research, including classroom strategies, leadership styles and school transformation.


It has been claimed that up to 90% of research that is published never gets read.  Whilst this might be an over-exaggeration, there is no doubt that many professionals working in schools are unfamiliar with academic research.  Our Cake and Journal Club is the perfect way to start engaging with research and current ideas in education, which will shape your pedagogy and the lives of our your learners.

If this sounds of interest to you and you would like to join us for our first 'Cake and Journal meeting', then contact
