About us

Welcome to Meopham School, where a traditional family culture combines with an ambitious ethos for excellence.

Our ethos creates a supportive, energising and inspiring climate for success. Indeed, we were recognised as the highest performing non-selective school in Kent for the third year running in the October 2018 School Performance Tables.

However, at Meopham School we measure success not just in terms of excellent academic outcomes, but also in the development of strong character. We recognise that excellent examination results are only a part of the story. Qualifications and personality open doors initially, but it is strength of character which keeps those doors open and allows our young people to lead happy, successful and healthy lives. Within our Sixth Form we have a brand new Enrichment Programme allowing our students to gain the extra experience and qualifications needed to stand out from the crowd. Students will partake in activities and courses designed by Higher Education establishments and word renowned companies such as the Open University, University of Southampton, Pixl6, Google and Microsoft.

We are proud that Meopham School students are curious in their learning, resilient in overcoming difficulty, and are confident in evaluating their own progress. As a consequence, they are ambitious to achieve academic and personal success, both in school and in the world beyond.

Students and staff moved into our brand new £14 million building in Spring 2018. The state-of-the-art school offers an inspiring modern learning environment, with traditional classroom spaces.
