Welcome to Meopham


Meopham School is a small rural 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 brand new £14 million school building, which opened in Spring 2018, offers a state-of-the-art and inspiring modern learning environment which further facilitates this approach. 

Meopham School was rated as “Good” by Ofsted in both November 2014 and in February 2018.  The 2018 Ofsted report acknowledges that, “Pupils make exceptional progress in the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science and in almost all other subjects.”  It concludes that, “This may indicate that the school is improving towards being outstanding.”

We were recognised as the highest performing High School in Kent for the second year running in the January 2018 School Performance Tables.  Our Progress 8 score of 0.57 places us in the top 10% of schools nationally.

About Us

Meopham School is a co-educational secondary school, with approximately 650 students, located in Meopham, Kent. The school is non-selective and therefore caters for a wide ability range of students. The school delivers academic and personal success through a traditional curriculum and a focus on the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science. We believe that success in these subjects is key to unlocking the broadest range of future opportunities for students.

Meopham School was rated as ‘Good’ in a 2014 Ofsted inspection. The report confirms that the school has improved students’ achievement “rapidly in a wide range of subjects in a short period of time.” The inspection found that the school, “is well led and managed” and that, “Leaders have an unrelenting focus on improving the quality of teaching and increasing students’ progress.”

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.
