Research and analysis

Influences on students' development from age 11 to 14

Research into the attainment and development of children from pre-school to the end of key stage 3.



This research is part of the effective pre-school, primary and secondary education (EPPSE) project.

It explores how different phases of education, especially secondary school, relate to students’ attainment, social behaviour and dispositions at age 14 (year 9 in secondary school) and the factors that predict developmental change.
