The very successful Maths Intervention after school on Thursdays is starting up again this week. Weekly revision sessions take place every Thursday with each Maths teacher from 3.05 – 4.00pm. We strongly suggest that you encourage your child to attend as many sessions as possible. It is our belief that a number of students who achieved a C grade in Maths last year did so because of the consistent effort that they showed throughout the year and the attendance at Thursday sessions throughout the year.

In addition the Saturday morning sessions will be run again this year at a date nearer to the final examination in the summer, as will Easter revision sessions.
If you have any questions regarding your child’s progress in Maths or their attendance to the above mentioned interventions please do not hesitate to contact the school.

Please note that the 2014/15 term date calendar has been updated to include all CPD days.

You can view or download the calendar HERE.

On the 13th July 40 students and 5 staff left Meopham for a week to go on an action packed adventure holiday at the Kent Mountain Centre in Wales. Activities included Rock climbing, Kayaking, Gorge scrambling and many more.

Students and staff are celebrating what are comfortably the best results ever secured at the school. 59% of students at the school achieved 5 or more good GCSEs, including English and Maths.

Notable successes include Shannon Bouchard, who achieved 10 passes at GCSE who said, “I am particularly amazed that I got an A in English, an A in Geography, an A in Photography and a Distinction* in Art.” Elliot Benn, who achieved 8 GCSEs at grade C and above, including an A* in Maths, A in Statistics, and C grades in English, Science and Additional Science said, “I tried my hardest and I am particularly pleased with my A* in Maths and A in Statistics.”

Students at Meopham School have been celebrating their A Level results.
Assistant Headteacher and Director of Sixth Form Manj Nijjer said, “Seeing the joy on the students’ faces as they open their results makes all the effort over the last two years worthwhile. Qualifications really open doors and it is so rewarding to be sending so many of them onto university.”

Dear Parents/Carers

The end of the academic year is a traditional time for members of every school community to reflect on what has gone before and prepare for what lies ahead. This year those themes have particular resonance for me and Mrs Dickinson as we adjust to some significantly different roles and look forward to some wonderful opportunities.

But in the midst of change the everyday business of school life goes on and there is much to share and to celebrate as the end of term approaches...

On 23rd June 2014 26 students from Meopham school participated in an art trip to Whitstable, supported by Miss Vilday, Miss Nicolas, Mr Ralph and Mrs Wilden.
The talented artists were able to create a variety of art pieces. These included ‘en plein air’ sketches of the beach and harbour area, macro photography and Andy Goldsworthy style sculptures. The highlight was an interactive piece of group work that involved the public. Each student selected a stone and decorated it with a sharpie. On the back the students wrote ‘If you find me, please take a picture and tweet @meophamschool’. Almost immediately we watched members of the public find the stones and, in some cases, take them with them. Even better was the fact that some people have already tweeted photos of the stones from Whitstable beach. So, if you happen to be in the beach area this week, keep an eye out for decorated stones!
