Schools are being sought for trials to find out if mentors can boost GCSE science results and for projects that to improve science and reading in primary schools.

The Education Endowment Foundation, which works to build an evidence base for teaching and learning interventions, has announced three upcoming trials that schools in England can take part in.

Chief executive professor Becky Francis said after pandemic disruption it was “really exciting that we are able to resume the important work of testing the impact of education programmes”.

The first project is a trial of Ascents 121, which aims to improve year 11 pupils’ science attainment by training undergraduate students to deliver weekly, one-to-one mentoring sessions to pupils in the lead up to their GCSE exam.
