Interventions and Evaluations


Realising Opportunities 

Realising Opportunities is a charity that promotes fair access and social mobility of students from groups underrepresented in higher education.  We worked with them to create a bespoke psychological intervention that aimed to increase retention on their program.  The work is ongoing.

Homewood school and sixth form are strongly committed research.  We worked collaboratively (with Dr Claire Tyson) to design a bespoke intervention that aims to raise the attainment of under-performing pupils.  The work is ongoing.

Widening Participation

The University of Sussex's Widening Participation team runs the Sussex Study Experience programme that brings would-be first-generation students to the Sussex campus to introduce them to university study.  We evaluated the programme and reported the results to the team.  

Education Endowment Foundation

The Education Endowment Foundation funded us to implement a self-affirmation intervention across 29 schools in England, aiming to raise the attainment of pupils eligible for free school meals.  The reports are available here.
