Meopham School is a small 11 to 18 co-educational school in a rural setting with a strong family ethos. We strive to achieve excellence in traditional academic subjects. Meopham School became an Academy as part of the Swale Academies Trust in February 2013. The school, located in the heart of the village of Meopham, is committed to teaching within traditional classroom spaces, in small teaching groups.
The school has entered an exciting stage of its development and is looking forward to a newly built school which will be completed by February 2018 as part of the Priority Schools Building Programme. The size and design of the new school will further facilitate our traditional teaching approach and family ethos.
