English curriculum hubs

There are two English Hubs that work with schools in our region - Whiteknights Primary School and Chesterton Primary School. They are proud to be two of the government’s English Hubs – two of just 34 schools nationwide recognised for their excellence in teaching and learning, and now charged with supporting other local schools to raise their standards.

Hub schools have been allocated a geographical area within the region. However, you may choose to engage with any Hub, for example if you already have links to a specific Hub.

The Greenshaw and Charles Dickens Research Schools serve our Hub area, but you can engage with any Research School. Find out more about the research schools network.

GreenshawGreenshaw High School is one of 39 research schools across the country (including associate research schools) which are funded by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) with the main aim of leading the way in supporting teachers to use evidence-based practice in their teaching. 

The research schools collaborate to devise professional development based on empirical evidence of what works and ‘best bets’. This means that Greenshaw has access to the most up-to-date research and is at the forefront in disseminating this and supporting the interpretation of evidence to other schools across London and the South East.
