Educational Quality Inspection

Our most recent full inspection, in February 2023, strongly affirmed that The Mead is a thoroughly excellent school where “Pupil’s achievement is excellent. They attain highly and progress well … demonstrate very high levels of engagement and are keen to learn” alongside “exhibiting excellent self-awareness and self-esteem growing in confidence because leaders and staff teach them with much warmth and respect”. We are delighted to announce that The Mead received Double Excellent– the highest possible ranking in this report, with every aspect of school life ranked excellent.
