Meadowhead School Academy is a popular and successful school with an excellent academic and pastoral reputation and very high standards of behaviour.

We have high expectations of ourselves and our students and welcome colleagues who share our commitment to continuous improvement.

  • The school became an elective Academy in August 2012 and gained full Sixth Form status in September 2013.
  • Our Sixth Form provision currently delivers a full A level programme to over 220 students and we opened our new Sixth Form Centre in November 2017.
  • We lead the Meadowhead Community Learning Trust, with six Primary Schools, Sheffield College, two Sheffield Universities and twenty national and local businesses.

Values and vision

It is our intention to create and maintain the kind of atmosphere in which young people will feel secure enough to develop their abilities, happy enough to take on new challenges and sufficiently stimulated to achieve their full potential.

Our students are provided with a fantastic learning environment and state-of-the-art facilities. We are committed to "Learning and Achieving Together" and we place a high premium on integrity and courtesy alongside high achieving academic success. We encourage students to be actively aware of the world around them through the curriculum and extra curricular opportunities – the school specialises in the teaching of languages and has an outstanding track record with many national and international links and partnerships.
