The Academy at Shotton Hall is a fully comprehensive, outstanding academy in Peterlee that provides a vibrant and stimulating learning environment for 11 – 16 year olds. It is also the founding school within the North East Learning Trust.

“We believe we can offer the right people with the right skills to get others interested and excited about using research in schools. Research can improve outcomes for children and we think it is too valuable to be an extra or a ‘nice to do’, so we plan to whip up plenty of enthusiasm and make research accessible and interesting for a far wider audience in education.”
