Headteacher's Welcome

You are most welcome to our website. I hope it gives you a very real sense of our family commitment to delivering a personalised education that ensures each student makes outstanding progress. Moreover, I hope it will help you to decide to come and visit us and experience just how much we believe in and promote, traditional British values of good manners, hard work, excellent behaviour and academic success.

Our school has been on a tremendous journey of progress and renewal over the last few years. Our predecessor school is long forgotten and our life as an academy has brought about rapid improvements. Most recently, we have moved our school into a new Multi Academy Trust, GLF Schools, which has ensured we can deliver outstanding standards even more consistently, through our combined commitment to excellence and innovation. Meridian High School is now successfully helping our students to become outstanding future leaders, equipped with the skills and qualities required to be successful 21st Century citizens. 

I became the school’s Headteacher on 1st September 2014. From day one I have been instilling an unprecedented focus on standards of teaching, learning and progress. With my experience of senior leadership in the both the Harris Federation and other successful London schools, I am acutely aware of what needs to be done to continue raising our outcomes and most importantly, how to do it quickly. No stone is being left unturned in our relentless drive to further improve the school. I am deeply proud of what our students and staff have already achieved and remain as excited as ever about the future of our school and what the students will achieve in the years to come.

Our rapid progress journey has been recognised by Ofsted who said that the school has been ‘transformed’.

We value and celebrate our wonderfully diverse community in an atmosphere of mutual learning and respect. We want all students to feel valued. We insist that, above all else, they feel safe and supported. It is important to us that they understand that personal responsibility; student leadership and student voice can have a powerful impact on school and community improvement.

Meridian High School is set on a stunning 34 acre site on the Kent and Surrey borders. Uniquely, the global meridian line runs through the very centre of our school. We are exploiting this fact to develop student ambition and to position each of them to successfully take their place as proud British citizens in a global marketplace.

As a child, I grew up on a council estate on the outskirts of Dublin. I went to a fantastic high school that enabled me to see life beyond my own doorstep and to develop a belief that I could be ‘me’ and achieve personal success by following my dreams. I want all of our children to have the same wonderful high school experience I had and, as a result, develop the courage to follow their own dreams and ambitions.

I am very proud to lead this school. Our intention is to provide insight into school life via our website, but to get a real understanding of how we are transforming lives you must visit us and see the school in action.

If you require any further information regarding the school please feel free to contact us at any time.

We welcome visits to the school throughout the year. If you would like to arrange a visit, especially if you think we could potentially be your Year 5 or Year 6 child’s high school, please contact Mrs Hickmott who will make arrangements for you.

My staff and I genuinely look forward to welcoming you and your son/daughter to Meridian High School.

Martin Giles, Headteacher.
