Healthy Minds – A Unique Education Research Project

Bounce Forward (formerly How to Thrive), in partnership with the London School of Economics (LSE), has been awarded funding from the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) to deliver national resarch project called Healthy Minds.

Healthy Minds is a unique and exciting research project that is following 11,000 secondary school students over 4 years. The research aims to evidence the link between emotionally stable, self‐efficacious students and improved behaviour and academic attainment in school.

31 secondary schools are involved in the Randomised Controlled Trial (RCT) that will analyse the impact of teaching a specific curriculum for one lesson per week from year 7 through to year 10. Teachers from the schools are involved in extensive, specialist training to assist in the delivery of high quality teaching and learning in the personal, social, health lessons.

The research will measure academic attainment and health and wellbeing. The academic element of the research has been funded by the EEF. Establishing funding for the health and wellbeing element of the research has been more challenging. We are delighted and hugely grateful to have secured funding from the London School of Economics (LSE) and Public Health Hertfordshire to capture the baseline health data. We are continuing to seek funding to ensure the health and wellbeing research is secure throughout the project. Please do get in touch if you can support us with this aspect of the research.

The schools involved include academies, gramma, faith and free schools as well as one special school. They are based in Buckinghamshire, Essex, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, Kent, London, Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire, Surrey and Wolverhampton.
