Research & Development

Research and Development (R&D) is a key strand within the TSA agenda.

R&D enables schools to learn and improve by drawing on existing research and by innovating, testing and evaluating new approaches to teaching, leadership, professional development and/or school improvement.


Much of our work to date has been in collaboration with HEIs and organisations such as Royal Opera House Bridge.  More recently we have heavily engaged with Anglia Ruskin University and MENCAP.


Billericay TSA is engaged in a wide range of small and larger projects involving areas such as subject and classroom based projects through to national agendas.  Most projects span a 12-24 month period. See below for some of our current and past projects:
