Headteacher: Mrs Kam Grewal-Joy

We would like to take this opportunity of offering you a warm welcome to Meadowhead School. At Meadowhead we see the education of young people as a partnership between pupils, parents and school where each partner is clear about the contribution that is expected of them. We look to appoint teachers and support staff who share our philosophy and are wanting to make a difference to our school community.

  • Meadowhead School moved into new purpose built accommodation in 2007.  We became a Trust school in 2009, setting up the Meadowhead Community Learning Trust (MCLT) in partnership with six feeder primary schools, Sheffield College, Sheffield University, Sheffield Hallam University and a number of local and national businesses.  This charitable trust is now known as Meadowhead Together and actively works to enhance the learning experiences across the family of schools. In August 2012, the school became a converter academy and we remain a stand-alone academy trust.

  • We house our own Sixth Form currently teaching A level courses and level 3 courses to over 292 students.  We opened our new purpose built Sixth Form Centre in November 2017. 

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.  That working atmosphere is built upon high standards and expectations.  We work in partnership with others to equip young people with the skills, attitudes and qualifications needed to secure successful careers and to become responsible adults in the future.
