Meet the Head

We are delighted to welcome you to The Mead School website and hope that it will give you an insight into the life and work of The Mead community.

Our mission is to enable every child to feel success, realise potential and become confident life-long learners.

First and foremost we are a family community, firmly believing that a child who is happy and secure in school is one who will thrive and learn and thereby achieve.

We give our children the opportunity to experience and experiment, for this will give them the confidence and enthusiasm to embrace their future secondary education. We are proud that our school enjoys a reputation for high academic standards within a caring, happy environment.

I hope you enjoy exploring our site and very much look forward to welcoming you to The Mead and introducing our unique school.

I would be delighted to show you around, so please use the link below to book a suitable time.
