The SIPS Junior High project, funded by the NIHR Public Health Research Programme, aims to test the feasibility of conducting a research project in a high school setting with year 10 pupils (14-15 years old) and their parents, which aims to prevent and reduce hazardous drinking in youth. After completing a questionnaire about their drinking, pupils with positive scores are invited to join the study, a cluster randomisation of seven schools in North East England, involving them in different intensities of intervention.
