MEA Central, a Prospere Learning Trust school, opened with 210 Year 7 students in September 2017; we now have a full compliment of over 1000 students across all year groups. Through high academic aspirations, an impressive culture and wide range of extra-curricular opportunities, we develop students in to articulate, active and respectful citizens, ready to go out and do good in the world.

Our vision of a fantastic future for all our students is easy to understand but complex to achieve, as the future evolves so rapidly around us.

Our vision underpins all we do, and our starting point is excellent academic results. Our first Ofsted inspection in February 2022, recognised that MEA Central is an excellent school. Inspectors judged Leadership and Management, Behaviour and Attitudes and Personal Development to be Outstanding.
