focus groups

We carried out focus groups with five groups of Year 11 students at each of three schools: an 11-18 London comprehensive school that we have called Shelley, an 11-18 rural comprehensive school in the South of England that we have called Franklin and an 11-16 Catholic comprehensive school in a large town in the South-West of England that we have called Saint Joan's.

We have also done focus groups with a smaller number of third year undergraduates in mathematics, sociology and media studies, some at two Russell Group universities that we have called Wollstonecraft and Meitner and some at two post-1992 university that we have called Gillespie and Charlton-Moore.

Here you can find our focus group schedule, our method of analysis and our key findings.
