Virtual Open Evenings
Welcome to the Y6 Virtual Open Evening
Please scroll down the page to access all information.
Dear Prospective Parent,
I would like to introduce myself. I am Jim Smith, the very proud Headteacher of Meden School. I hope you choose to join us in September 2021 for the next chapter in your child's school career.
If your child is currently in Year 6 and due to start secondary school in September 2021, you will currently be in the process of making one of the most important decisions a parent/carer has to make. Choosing the right secondary school for your child can be a daunting prospect. The importance of making an informed decision on your child’s future education cannot be understated.
At Meden School, we believe all young people deserve the best standard of education. We offer the highest levels of encouragement and aspiration that will enable our students achieve their true potential. This is one of the reasons why Meden is the first choice of school for many students across our area. We are a true success story throughout our community; a feeling endorsed by both our parents and students.
Unfortunately, we are unable to host our normal Open Evening due to COVID-19 restrictions. We hope our online event will help you discover for yourself what is special about Meden School and why it is the right place for your child to flourish, develop and achieve success.
For more information or to request a video call from one of the Senior Leadership Team or Pastoral Team please do not hesitate to contact us.
I look forward to welcoming your child in September 2021 and to forging a strong partnership with you so that together we can support your child to fulfil their potential.

One of the highlights for the children attending an Open Evening is often the fun activities they get to do. So as not to disappoint them we wanted to offer them a fun activity to do at home.
