Progress in the Upper School is monitored by a thorough and ongoing process of assessment to build an in-depth knowledge of the academic potential and development for every pupil in every subject.
In every subject each child is given tailored learning objectives and individual goals and every child has an academic mentor whose role it is to monitor pupil achievements and to help guide their further progress.
A range of Gifted and Talented provision gives in-class challenge and wider opportunities for the most able children, whilst in-class learning support for students who need it is backed up by booster classes and subject clinics to enhance learning in individual subjects.
We would like to thank Mrs Jepson for her enthusiasm and encouragement of our daughter with her reading and written English. The improvement from Year 6 to the potential of an A grade at GCSE is amazing.
The curriculum at Meoncross has been specifically designed to be broad, creative, inspiring and often challenging.
In the Upper School, all classes are taught by dedicated secondary subject specialists, with a focus on differentiation and a variety of inspiring teaching approaches. The wider curriculum offers opportunities from Latin to Computer Science.
