The Growing Learners team are a group of education research psychologists led by Professor Sherria Hoskins. We work with schools and parents to support them in improving children’s expectations and attainment using evidence-based practice. All of the services we offer are underpinned by theory and applied research. We have a range of intervention packages and products that are all aimed at promoting growth mindsets.
