Somerset Research School
As one of the 37 Research Schools in the national network, Somerset Research School aims to get research evidence into the hands of schools and practitioners. We share what we know about putting research into practice and support schools to make better use of evidence to inform their teaching and learning. The aim, of course, is to ensure that this improves the outcomes for all children in the classroom, but especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds. We help teachers and school leaders get ‘closer to the evidence’ through communication, training and support for innovation.

Odyssey Computing Hub
We are a partnership between Adfecto, Pate’s Grammar School and the NCCE and one of the first DfE funded Teach Computing Hubs which form part of the National Centre for Computing Education.
The NCCE was set up in November 2018 by the Department of Education to increase the number of pupils in schools and colleges who study computer science at GCSE, AS and A level, particularly girls and those in disadvantaged areas, and to ensure that there is a strong pipeline of digital skills in England.
How can we help?
We support teachers by offering both remote and local face to face training; facilitating networks of teachers, professionals and subject leaders and offering bespoke training to schools, federations and Multi-Academy Trusts.
Mangotsfield English Hub
At the Mangotsfield Primary English Hub, our aims are to support schools in achieving excellence in early literacy teaching through:
- developing early reading through systematic synthetic phonics
- developing early language and closing the word gap and
- promoting a love of reading
The pathway into fully funded support with the English Hub is to attend a showcase and then be offered a range of medium level support. Some schools will also receive development days with one of our Literacy Specialists and other schools will become partner schools and receive more intensive support. We also hold funding for eligible schools to help fund training and fully decodable reading books.
