BrainWaves Research Study

Category: News

We are pleased to announce that our school has been selected to take part in BrainWaves, an exciting new mental health and wellbeing research study run by the University of Oxford’s
Department of Psychiatry, in partnership with the University of Swansea and
The Day, the online student newspaper that turns news into lessons.

Today’s young people face difficult mental health challenges in a world full of conflicting, confusing and often incorrect information. BrainWaves is a direct response to this. It aims to improve the quality of scientific knowledge about adolescent mental health and provide evidence-based, practical strategies and educational materials to schools.

BrainWaves is creating a large-scale national student group to participate in research and help develop the project. Our Key Stage 5 pupils have been invited to be in the first wave of schools
taking part, and will be working closely to support the University of Oxford in their research.

We are excited that our students will have the unique opportunity to shape the landscape of adolescent mental health.
