Vision and Ethos
Meridian High School is an ambitious learning community with a family ethos. That means, above all else, we help each other to be kind, do our best and be amazing: now and always.
We are driven by a very simple belief that everyone deserves a first class education. We have high aspirations for every member of our school and believe that everyone is capable of remarkable academic successes. As a GLF Schools Academy, we provide high quality, challenging and personalised education experiences to ensure that we all have every opportunity to Grow, Learn and Flourish as exceptional leaders and contributors to society.
Meridian High School is a forward looking, and dynamic Academy. We believe education is about developing the whole person, helping learners to understand the many different branches of human knowledge, challenging them to think critically and encouraging a desire for truth and curiosity in life. We further believe that kindness, integrity, good manners, hard work, excellent behaviour and personal pride are vital educational tools. Our broad and balanced, knowledge based curriculum, enables social equity and mobility.
We believe in, and promote, traditional British values of:
- Respect for all and the liberty of the individual
- An understanding of the dignity of others
- The freedom to make the most of one's talents
- Respect for the institutions of democracy
- The celebration of diverse cultural and religious beliefs
- A just and fair society
Our dedicated staff is persistent in their commitment to ensuring that students benefit from a range of personalised opportunities inside and outside the classroom, designed to ensure that their achievements match our high expectations. We are driven to ensure that the students will move on to high-level apprenticeships, further education, universities (including those from the Russell Group), and successful careers.
