School-Based Research Projects

At Abbot’s Lea School we are very very keen to participate in and contribute to researched aimed at improving learning experiences and outcomes for students with Autism.

We work in partnership with Higher Education sector to facilitate research projects that we believe are in line with our school development priorities.


If you are developing a research project and would like to contact Abbot's Lea School for participation we ask that you send a formal summary of your research project, ethics committee approval and a risk assessment for your direct work with the students.

DBS will be essential if you were to work directly with the students and we would require a confirmation of your compliance with the safeguarding standards. Communication with the families would come from the school, including information about the project and any publication of its findings.

Please contact Micah Jayne Grimshaw, Head of Autism Research and Development for more information: micah.grimshaw@abbotsleaschool.co.uk
