Life after The Mead School

Pupils from The Mead go on to a wide range of the excellent local senior schools, including the six grammar schools within our catchment area.

Finding the right senior school

As our boys and girls progress towards the top of the school, a key service we offer to them and their parents is support in choosing a senior school. This means identifying which senior school is the best match for your child and will help them continue to grow and thrive. We have a dedicated Head of Transition at The Mead, and have close relationships with all senior schools in Kent and East Sussex, whether Grammar, Independent or State. When the time comes, we are delighted to help you make this key choice.
