GLF Schools

GLF Schools was founded in 2012 in order to enable the federation of Glyn School (an academy in 2011) and Danetree Junior School. Together, we began our journey to become a MAT of more than 1000 talented staff working with over 10,000 children in 40 schools across 5 regions in southern England.

Welcome to Meridian High School

At Meridian High School we have an incredibly committed and dedicated staff team who have the privilege of supporting and teaching a genuinely comprehensive intake of students, both in terms of backgrounds and abilities. Every single one of us contributes to the personal development, progress and experience of the students at Meridian High School.    Vision for Meridian High School To become embedded as the Centre of Excellence for our community where students are encouraged to present the best version of themselves. Students are challenged, they learn and achieve within a culture or resilience, ambition and respect. We are an inclusive school and aim to provide our students with a personalised provision to enhance learning so that all students thrive. Our Curriculum We are proud to offer a broad and rich curriculum designed specifically with our students needs at the heart of it. Our core curriculum (not optional) is EBACC centric and all students, with the exception of those who need additional support with Literacy, study English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, World Views, and Spanish. We understand the need to develop our student's understanding of the world in which they live and fully support the cultural appreciation offered by an extensive EBACC programme. At the end of Year 9, in addition to the core curriculum offer, students opt to continue with History or Geography, specialise in one aspect of our World View Curriculum (RE, Psychology, Sociology) which enables students to develop an appreciation and understanding of the wider world, choose their creative pathway in Art or Drama to enhance their creative thinking and problem solving skills and select a vocational pathway via BTEC Sport, NCFE Business or Catering to strengthen their application of practical skills.
