About Meoncross School
Meoncross School is very proud to be a through school – enabling children to start their educational journey at 2.5 years, and continuing through until Year 11. It really is the only school you will ever need.
Meoncross is a school that consistently achieves high academic results. This success is linked not only to small class sizes and highly trained and talented staff, but is also the result of the school’s strong focus on personalised learning, which allows every student to realise their full potential, regardless of ability. Whilst academic excellence is a top priority, they also passionately believe that emotional wellbeing and happiness are crucial to educational success.
The vast majority of students leaving Meoncross at the end of Year 11, go on to study A Levels at some of the region’s most respected further education colleges. Many continue on to top UK universities including many in the Russell Group.
Not only does the school place a great deal of emphasis on providing students with a robust and rigorous pastoral system, but there is also strong values-led approach to education with seven core values – Family, Adventure, Integrity, Resilience, Optimism, Achievement and Kindness. These values not only form the bedrock for school culture but also provide the framework for the V2V (Values to Virtues) Character Education programme. The aim at Meoncross School is that these seven core values become so deeply rooted within a child’s character that the corresponding virtues become an intrinsic part of each student’s personality.
Whilst the Meoncross School curriculum is based on the national framework for England, as an independent school they have the flexibility to their adapt programmes of study. Meoncross strives to ensure learning and teaching includes best international educational practice to enable pupils to develop a global perspective. Through a focus on nurturing specific skills including creativity, critical thinking, problem solving and collaboration our aim is to prepare our pupils for the future global workplace with the attitudes and aptitudes that will be highly valued anywhere in the world.
Many elements of modern life mean that young children have fewer opportunities to develop the resilience and wellbeing vital to happiness and health. Evidence suggests that even a small improvement in wellbeing can help children and young people flourish emotionally, socially, physically and academically. It can even help decrease some mental health problems. This is why, at Meoncross, the wellbeing of students is at the heart of school life. It underpins the primary aim to deliver academic excellence and helps create happy, independent learners.
Meoncross School is part of the Cognita Education Group, which currently has over 40 UK independent and 30 international schools in South America, South East Asia and mainland Europe. The benefits of belonging to a highly successful international organisation cannot be underestimated in terms of the development of best global education practice, enhanced student opportunities, financial stability and the incredible level of educational expertise within the group. Whilst all Cognita schools operate with a high degree of autonomy, they all adopt the group’s core vision of academic excellence, character education and the development of global mindedness from around the world.
