Meridian School is a small, successful and dynamic learning community serving all students aged 13 – 18 in Royston and local villages.
It is Royston’s only upper school, and alongside eight first schools and two middle schools forms the Royston Area Schools Partnership (RASP).
In November 2011, Meridian cemented its close working relationships with Greneway and Roysia Middle Schools by creating the Royston Schools Academy Trust (www.rsat.org.uk). This innovative federation – the first in Hertfordshire – aims to offer an outstanding education to its students. Meridian has been a specialist Maths and Computing college since 2003 and both middle schools were awarded the specialism in 2008, reinforcing the strong partnership we enjoy.
Ethos and values
Meridian is ambitious, with high expectations for all students. Positive relationships are at the heart of the school and these are based on an ethos of mutual respect. The school believes in competition; with a thriving house structure. We celebrate achievement, good attendance and behaviour and expect all to work hard. Our curriculum is more traditional than in many schools – and so is our uniform. We frame all this within a setting of care and support which is exceptionally good. Meridian is a modern, forward thinking school within a traditional ethos – and with first class facilities and opportunities for its students.
