Biography:

Andrew Eyles is currently a research economist in the Education and Skills program at the CEP. He is also a PhD (Economics) student at University College London.

Current Areas of Research:

With colleagues at the CEP, I have worked on a number of projects regarding academy schools; in particular, the effect that early sponsored academies have had on test scores and later educational outcomes. Alongside this I have done work on the effect of academy conversion, at the primary school level, on Key Stage 2 achievement.

Current projects look at the extent to which the expansion of autonomous schools in England has changed the head teacher wage distribution.
