With a focus on achieving a good or outstanding Ofsted grade at the next inspection, the school’s leadership team has already seen a number of significant improvements as a result of changes already in force.
“We are excited by the year ahead with a number of new and existing staff achieving local or national recognition for their outstanding teaching and subject specialisms. We believe every student deserves the very best education,” said newly appointed Executive Headteacher Esther Brooks.
She has achieved an Ofsted rating of Outstanding with Croydon’s Chestnut Park Primary School where she is the Headteacher and is bringing her experience to Meridian High which has been proving popular this week.
After a busy open evening on Monday (23) and two Open Morning Tours on September 30 and October 1 at 9.30am the school is looking to schedule a further open morning later in October to meet demand.
“We know that no school can stand still and needs to continually improve - working as a primary and secondary partnership is enabling that,” said Mrs Brooks.
A Knowledge Quiz has been introduced at the start of each lesson and a new focus on a vocabulary development programme for students.
The secondary school is a member of the multi-academy trust GLF and headteacher Martin Giles said he has been delighted at the strong sense of rapid improvement which was highlighted during this week’s open evening.
“It was a wonderful event where this improvement was clear to see. I was particularly proud of the fantastic feedback we received about our students and how proudly they spoke of their school. We are all very proud to serve the community and look forward to welcoming more visitors to our Open Mornings,” he said.
