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, we are committed to academic excellence and many features on the following pages will reflect that 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.

Head of School
