About Us

Partners in Learning, in conjunction with Doncaster Research School, is a highly successful Doncaster based school improvement company and charity with reach of over 1000 people and organisations. As organisations, we lead the way together in the use of evidence informed practice by bringing research closer to schools. Through our existing networks, we work with and alongside leaders and teachers to promote and share what we know about putting research into practice, supporting schools to make better use of evidence to inform teaching and learning, leading to better outcomes for pupils. We are committed to strengthening and embedding partnership working to ensure strategic approaches and enable schools to access wider expertise and opportunities.
