Lesson Studies

The power of lesson study as a sustainable and powerful form of school improvement has clear merit.  Our work with the Teacher Development Trust and NTEN has moved this strategy to the forefront of our plans for professional development.  Participation in Lesson Study is a voluntary activity, although many members of staff have chosen to incorporate it into their innovation appraisal target for this academic year.

The aim of this page is to share the experiences of colleagues who have completed lesson studies.  If you would like to have your lesson study published here please make contact using the form below.  As lesson studies are completed and written up they will be shared below.
