Advantages: Great education, one on one teaching
I am writing this review from a students prospective as i attending the school for 5 years until i left school in 1999.
I also have friends who's children attend this school now.
** A BIT OF HISTORY **
Meoncross school was originally founded in 1953, but didnt move to where it is located today until 1983. Meoncross is a private school which offers education from kindergarten to senior. So a student could literally be in this school their whole life, which many of my friends had been.
** FEES **
The fees today are :
Kindergarten (age 2+ - 3+) £395-£3510 per term
Infant School tuition fee (age 4+ - 7+) £1980 per term
Junior School tuition fee (age 7+ - 11+) £2225 per term
Senior School tuition fee (age 11+ - 16+) £2830 per term
School lunches (optional for seniors) £166 per term
Milk (optional) £28 per term
Juice (Infants only) Twice daily £53 per term
Juice (Infants only) Once daily £29 per term
Fees may be paid by standing order over 10 or 12 months. A full term's written notice is required by the first day of term before a pupil is removed from the School. In the absence of such notice, the full term's fee must be paid. Fees are increased annually, each September.
The fees have been increased probably 10 times since i left and they were certainly a lot cheaper back then.
** TEACHING STAFF **
The head master of the school now and back then is Christopher Ford. He is a very firm man, but he is very caring and does really care about the students. He expects the best from everyone and gains respect.
The teaching staff have changed a little bit since i was there, but all teachers are trained and educated to a very high standard and always get the best from their students.
** STUDENTS **
The school is very small and only has a small amount of students. Each year only has two classes/tutor groups which usually only have around 15/16 pupils in each.
The education is often one on one, which is obviously what a parent pays for.
Their GCSE results are outstanding and remain the same most years.
** LIFE AT MEONCROSS **
The school is very strict in all aspects, education, uniform and they always expect the very best from you. They will always push you to pick up that extra subject etc.
The school sports teams are excellent and win many competitions.
The cafeteria was always very tasty and offered a wide range of foods.
** MY OVERALL OPINION **
If you can afford to send your child to a private school meoncross is one of the best in hampshire.
I was an unruly teenager and i personally hated school but meoncross calmed me down a great deal.
