The awards, run by GlaxoSmithKline, give funding to schools for specific science projects. The judges chose to split the £10,000 fund between 31 schools, with Meridian receiving £395.
The school is spending the cash on a gel electrophoresis kit, which is used in DNA experiments.

To be eligible for the award, the school had to complete an application form stating the equipment it wanted to buy and the reason it was needed.
Mrs Webb said: "The electrophoresis kit splits DNA fragments, in a similar process to that used for DNA finger printing.
