Huntington Research School is our local research school for the York area.

It has been one of the schools at the forefront of making evidence-based practice the norm in schools. As a Research School their core purpose is to:

  • share and disseminate the very best of evidence-based practice to schools and teachers across Yorkshire and the Humber
  • provide evidence-based training
  • host conferences and events
  • support schools and other educational organisations across the region

As a teaching school for the York area we work alongside Huntington to ensure that between us, we offer schools the best CPD, training and support available.

They also run a number of research based events where they share the outcomes of their findings.  You can search and book the latest events at...

We are excited to offer the following free twilight sessions:


11th May: Social and Emotional Learning

Research has shown that good social and emotional skills—including self-regulation, self-awareness, and social skills—developed by the age of ten, are predictors of a range of adult outcomes, such as life satisfaction and wellbeing, labour market success, and good overall health. However, many of our disadvantaged children have, on average, weaker social and emotional skills at all ages.

Few teachers receive support on how they can develop these skills in their everyday teaching practice and therefore this twilight is designed to support teachers to develop their skills and their understanding of social and emotional learning in the primary classroom.


May 5th and 19th: The EEF Guide to Supporting School Planning: A Tiered Approach

A two-part twilight, that builds on the EEF guide, aiming to support school leaders with their planning. Part 1 focuses upon high-quality teaching as the best available evidence indicates that great teaching is the most important lever schools have to improve outcomes for their pupils.

Part 2 will look targeted academic support as well as wider strategies to tackle non-academic barriers to success in school, including attendance, behaviour and social and emotional support.


We are also excited to announce the return, this May, of our popular programme (BUT IN AN ONLINE MODULAR FORMAT through the summer term): 


As children return full-time to school and we look to support them, the best available evidence indicates that great teaching is the most important lever we have to improve outcomes for our pupils:

Metacognition is a significant component of high quality teaching as we can explicitly teach pupils to monitor and purposefully direct their thinking and learning. We now have evidence that the disadvantage gap has widened and on average disadvantaged students are less likely to have these strategies and to benefit from explicitly taught them.

The EEF Teaching and Learning Toolkit shows that on average metacognition and self-regulation interventions have an impact of 7 months additional progress. When attending this programme you will:

  • Develop an understanding of metacognition and self-regulation;
  • Be provided with the tools and processes for self-review;
  • Be provided with guidance on effective implementation;
  • Be offered practical resources and tools to use in school;
  • Be given the skills and knowledge to be able to offer in-school training that is evidence based.
