About Us

Meopham School is a vibrant and ambitious 11-18 school with a strong family ethos.  Our mission is academic excellence, delivered through a traditional curriculum. 

Located in the heart of the village of Meopham, we are committed to teaching within traditional classroom spaces.  Our new £14 million main school building opened in Spring 2018. A second building is currently under construction, and is due for completion in late spring 2024. Once completed all teaching spaces will offer state-of-the-art and inspiring modern learning environments. 

Meopham School was rated as “Good” in all areas by Ofsted in April 2023

The report outlines the strengths of our school and in particular what it is like to attend from a student perspective. It is particularly pleasing to note that the first statement within the report exemplifies what our students experience on a daily basis:

"Pupils are proud to attend this inclusive and positive school. They value the supportive and nurturing relationships they have with staff."

Meopham School joined the Swale Academies Trust as an academy on 1st February 2013. For further information about the Swale Academies Trust click here

Students are allocated to one of four Houses. Two of the Houses, Redgrave and Holmes, are named after famous British athletes – the Olympic champions, Sir Steven Redgrave and Dame Kelly Holmes. The other two are named Newton and Brunel after successful figures linked to the field of mathematics – Sir Isaac Newton who virtually invented modern mathematics and Isambard Kingdom Brunel the Victorian engineer. 

Meopham School is particularly proud of its highly consistent approach to teaching and learning, which places a strong focus on differentiation.  Our “House Style” of teaching empowers students to make guided choices during the course of lessons.  This encourages students to strive for their personal best, and enables us to meet the needs of individuals extremely well, whatever their background and ability.
