Welcome to
Meden School

As you explore the website, you will get a flavour of the unique culture that exists within Meden 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).

Whether you are a current or prospective student or parent/carer, potential member of staff or a casual browser taking an interest in the school, I trust that you will find our website a useful source of information. If you would like to find out more, please contact us.

At Meden School we like to think of our community of students, staff, parents, governors and local business leaders as a family. We seek to provide a setting where students can grow academically and thrive as individuals.

Our staff are warm and caring and committed to helping every child reach their potential. Put simply we believe that every child can succeed and it is our job to ensure this.

Our priorities are excellent examination outcomes, impeccable behaviour, great teaching and the widest possible range of extra-curricular experiences for all students. Together these things deliver what I think most parents want — happy children who leave school well-equipped to cope with the world outside and with a range of options open to them.

Our pastoral care, underpinned by our House system and vertical tutor groups, provides every child with a support network that will be there to encourage and nurture their talents every step of the way.
