Meridian Newcastle is an independent mainstream school accommodating learners from Grade RR to Grade 12. The school is designed to serve the broader community of people living in the Newcastle area and offers learners state-of-the-art facilities, including modern computer laboratories.
Our mission is to engender a climate of goodwill, enthusiasm, dedication and co-operation.
We aim to stimulate and motivate learners to receive and enjoy quality education, develop the necessary life skills and respect for diversity to guide them towards responsible adulthood, enabling them to take their rightful place in society.
Our Grade RR class provides a sound and safe environment where each child is extended and growth is encouraged academically, socially, emotionally, physically and spiritually.
In the primary and high schools the focus is on academic excellence, with an emphasis on preparation for tertiary education. A disciplined, safe and stable environment is offered and a culture of quality in the classroom is supported by a well-managed curriculum and committed educators. Our schools offer extended school hours to provide academic support.
Along with the core values, Meridian Newcastle will teach learners the values of respect, manners, hard work and commitment, honesty and integrity, promoting a sense of self-worth, potential and self-value.
The enhanced mainstream curriculum emphasises gateway subjects such as Mathematics, Science and Accounting, but also gives the necessary attention to Computer Literacy and Information Technology.
Meridian Newcastle provides the children of the area with the opportunity to attend an independent school of quality with the guarantee of academic results that will create real opportunities to bring about meaningful change in the community as a whole.
