Our School

Welcome to Meredale Independent School

Meredale Independent is a well-run independent school with a warm friendly atmosphere that provides a safe, secure environment for children using traditional family values combined with a modern teaching approach.

There are six classes in the main school, each one small enough to ensure that every pupil receives individual attention as needed and the ethos of the school is to develop each individual child to their full potential both educationally and pastorally.

One of the most valuable gifts parents can give a child is a good education and choosing a school for your child is a very important decision which can take time and careful consideration. At Meredale Independent we strongly believe that a happy, confident child is a successful child. We believe that an important part of our role is to enable pupils to use the excellent education they have been given, to have the confidence, tenacity and skills to acquire the qualifications and profession they may choose later in life.

Our mornings are predominantly devoted to Maths and English studies and afternoons to more practical lessons. We have a wide curriculum including Swimming and French delivered by specialist teachers, which focuses on each individual child. Our classes take no more than 20 children and with approachable and enthusiastic staff in a ratio of 1:10 we aim to make your child’s time at school memorable, enjoyable and fun, to ensure they thrive and flourish into well rounded and successful children.

Every child is different but whatever your child’s personality and talents, we aim to ensure that they are happy, self-assured and successful in all areas of school life.

We would like to invite you to come and visit our School, meet some of our staff and children, view the really excellent facilities we have on offer and get a sense of what is important to us.
