Research in Schools

Aberdeenshire council welcomes and supports research in our schools. We particularly support research that:

  • Encourages learning
  • Has the potential to contribute to new knowledge and practice in education
  • Investigates what appears to be working well so that practitioners and policy makers can learn from the most successful experiences or examples
  • Helps to improve practice in educational settings

Researchers from outwith the council wishing to undertake research in Aberdeenshire Council schools should use the following application form and guidance to make their request:
