Outstanding Research Skills

Six Meadowhead students have received prizes as part of a University of Sheffield funded project. The project focused on comparing the experiences of BTEC and A Level students in applying and joining university.

As part of the project, the University provided funding for all Y12 students to visit the University Library to learn about study and research skills. The school has also joined the JSTOR platform enabling students to access a much wider range of academic research. The additional funding also enabled the Sixth Form to offer an increased prize fund for our annual research poster competition completed in tutor time.
