Past Research

Georgina's PhD research (University of Greenwich utilised a multiple case study approach to explore how research activity is being undertaken and managed within Teaching School Alliances and Multi-Academy Trusts. The study responds to a specific period within the English education system where the Government has attempted to implement an evidence-based self-improving 'schools-led education system' (e.g. DfE, 2010). The study addresses gaps in the literature concerning limited knowledge about how much teacher researchers understand about research, the methods being used, and how they are addressing ethical considerations. Overall it was found that research in these institutions was mostly collaborative in nature with a preference for statistical outcomes and a top-down management approach. Participants had a limited understanding of research methods and ethical considerations and it was suggested that this was a training need.

Georgina has also worked as a research intern for Canterbury Christ Church University, exploring the impact of a Forest School intervention on KS2 pupils.

Future Research

Georgina is currently exploring the concept of middle leadership within Multi Academy Trusts.
