Head's Message...

Janet Brashaw
Head of School

Welcome to the Meden School website. I hope that as you explore the site, you will get a flavour of the unique culture that exists within our school.

Our aim is very simple and that is to be recognised as outstanding in every aspect. The determination of staff and governors to achieve this goal is very strong and is based on a simple but direct strategy: ABC (Achievement, Behaviour and Curriculum).

Did You Miss our Year 6 Open Evening?

We would like to offer you the opportunity to visit our school to have a look around. The best time is always during the normal school day and you can ring school reception to book a tour at any time convenient to you - 01623 843517

School Standards

An increasing number of students are failing to come to school with the correct equipment eg pen, pencil, ruler calculator. From Monday we will be carrying out strict equipment checks and students may face sanctions if they do not have the right equipment.
