Get insight into the latest research

  • Be the first to read Stonewall’s latest School Report, the UK’s largest piece of research into the lives of LGBT young people in Britain and get advice on what the results mean for your school. 
  • Understand the latest guidelines on LGBT-inclusive education and how to implement them. 
  • Get an exclusive look at the new Stonewall curriculum guide, which provides lesson plans and ideas that will enable you to ensure your whole school is embedding inclusion in every subject. 

This year I learnt so much about trans issues and the latest guidance on how to tackle them in our school, it was invaluable.
