Welcome from the Principal




Welcome to MEA Central

I am delighted to welcome you to our website.

We are a mixed secondary school of over 1050 scholars in South Manchester, defined by our mission, ‘A fantastic future for all.' We work tirelessly to remove any barriers that might prevent our young people from achieving their potential and living successful, happy lives.  Our culture combines high expectations, warmth and encouragement with a focus on excellent academic outcomes to create informed citizens who will go out into the world and do what is right. Our values of Citizenship, Achievement and Participation and our belief in the power of language and the importance of the spoken word will develop confident young adults with a strong sense of social responsibility.

We deliver a challenging, knowledge-rich curriculum to prepare students not only for the GCSE assessment regime but also further education and life beyond.  We expect our students to meet our high expectations in terms of commitment and work ethic, but we also seek to ignite their intellectual passions and curiosities so that they become autonomous, fulfilled learners during their time with us.

There is so much more to MEA Central than what happens inside our classrooms, however! Our scholars benefit from a level of pastoral care and attention second to none, and our co-curriculum, which includes our extensive extra-curricular programme, ensures every child can gain valuable cultural capital and experience success in areas such as sport, music, drama and community activities. 

I hope you find everything you need on our website, but welcome you to get in touch if there is anything more you would like to know about us. I look forward to seeing you here soon.
