Schools Council Reports

There were close links between the Nuffield Foundation and the Schools Council in the planning and evaluation of the Nuffield Secondary Science Project. Following publication of the Newsom Report, the Council commissioned a group of experts to prepare the ground for the Nuffield project. The findings were published as the first of a series of Working Papers.

An evaluation of the Nuffield Foundation's curriculum development projects in science was first considered by the Schools Council in 1965. However it was not until March 1968 that a proposal for the evaluation of Nuffield Secondary Science was approved, and a further nine months elapsed before it was possible to start the work. As a result, the evaluation studied a selection of schools during the first year after the completion of trials.
