Thomas Martell

Thomas Martell is the director of research and development at a trust of schools in north-east England and teaches secondary science. His role includes leading the Shotton Hall Research School, which supports teachers and school leaders beyond the trust to develop evidence-informed practice. He is also a member of the British Educational Research Association College of Reviewers. Thomas joined the Education Endowment Foundation in April 2016 to lead the North East Primary Literacy Campaign. He previously served as a staff governor at a secondary school and is currently a co-opted governor at a primary School. During this time Tom was involved in innovative curriculum and assessment development, but his proudest achievement was supporting six students to – safely – cycle across rural Cambridgeshire as part of their Duke of Edinburgh Award. Tom studied Zoology at Durham University before completing his Postgraduate Certificate in Education at the University of Cambridge. He is interested in how evidence can inform practitioners and policymakers. This hinges on producing rigorous and relevant research and supporting sophisticated evidence use.
