He has written over six books and refereed more than 140 refereed articles, chapters and reports that range from original studies in classrooms and with teachers, through national reviews of research evidence in the field, to analyses of the changing policy landscape internationally.

In 2012, Professor Gillborn received the prestigious Derrick Bell Legacy Award from the US-based Critical Race Studies in Education Association (CRSEA) and has has twice been recipient of the UK's most prestigious education research award, the Society for Educational Studies (SES) prize for outstanding education book of the year.
