Boys' Achievement

The Boys? Research and Development group was developed as a result of a gap appearing nationally in regards to boys? achievement across key stages and subjects. Hartlepool Local Authority is working collaboratively with every secondary school in the town to investigate and research issues and solutions linked to this area and as a college we decided that the research groups would offer us the best opportunities to investigate this area further. Lead by one of our NPQSL participants, the group meet regularly and discuss current research and initiatives linked to this topic and measure the impact of different work across the college, with a focus upon specific, targeted groups. As well as this, the group works collaboratively upon joint pedagogical approaches within an atmosphere of mutual respect and challenge.
