Research first for Bridgnorth school

Bridgnorth Endowed School is the first in Shropshire to join a new network aimed at supporting schools to take part in research

Set up by the Clinical Research Network West Midlands (CRN WM), the Schools Research Network provides schools with insight into the role that research can play in supporting the health and wellbeing of children and young adults as well as staff.

The Network will share information about potential studies that are open in the region, and the benefits of taking part,  as well as accessing resources to support research careers.

As the work develops, schools  will also have access to research findings so they can find relevant information to care for children's health and wellbeing. Schools interested in signing up can find information here or by emailing

Samantha Kinsey, Research Facilitator with the CRN West Midlands (pictured,left) said:  “We are delighted to welcome Bridgnorth Endowed as our first Network member in Shropshire.  We are looking forward to working with them and with different schools across the West Midlands as the work grows.”

Headteacher Michael Penn (pictured, right) said:  “Our mission is to challenge and support our young people to achieve their potential, and we view membership  of the Schools Research Network as very much part of this, as it will give them an insight into the world of research.”

Last year more than 1.3 million people, of all ages, took part in vital health and social care research in England, playing a part in developing better treatments, improving diagnosis, and learning more about prevention of illness to provide better care for everyone. 


Notes for editors:

There are currently 18 schools from around the region in the Network.
