Call for Research Contributions


Are you researching teaching schools or cooperative schools?

The BELMAS Structural Reform Research Interest Group is planning to holds a series of meetings to explore new forms of school organisation. The aim is to share research approaches and findings and begin to build a picture of what research is going on and what we can learn from it. We have held successful meetings on multi-academy trusts and free schools, and are now hoping to focus on teaching schools and cooperative schools. Are you researching these - or other - new forms of organisation, as an academic, a research student or an independent researcher? If so we would very much like to hear from you. It doesn’t matter whether your research is in its early stages, has produced some preliminary results or has been completed; these meetings will provide an opportunity for discussion and debate in a supportive atmosphere.

If you would like to be involved please contact Tim Simkins (
