The entrance to Meden School Reception

At Meden School, we are committed to academic excellence. We are ambitious for our students and keen to ensure that they are thriving in a vibrant academic environment which provides pace, challenge and support.

We place an emphasis on the development of skills alongside knowledge so that our students become active and independent learners, prepared for both further education and for their place in an increasingly global society.

We know every individual is unique and we want every talent and ability to be recognised and developed. Through our Tutors and Heads of House we provide a strong and effective pastoral system that supports every child in our school.

Achievement at Meden School

At Meden School, we believe that examination success allows our students to make the very most of their lives and student achievement is at the very heart of everything we do. We have developed a curriculum designed to challenge and engage students, offering them the very best preparation for examination success and the skills and confidence required to make full use of those qualifications.

Exciting, engaging and inspiring lessons lie at the centre of our curriculum and as a school, we constantly strive to provide your child with the very best educational experience.

Extra curricular activities offer a further opportunity for your child to develop the skills and understanding needed to succeed throughout their lives. A broad range of sporting, artistic and academic courses are on offer, allowing students to fully explore and develop their potential. We have a range of support services that will ensure your child’s success, whatever their individual educational needs.

Examination results provide a good indication of how well a school is serving its students. Meden School has a sustained track record of continuous improvement, but to fully serve our community we will continue to strive for outstanding achievement for all.
