Welcome to Meden College
“I am delighted to welcome you to Meden College — a place where academic excellence and success for all our students drives everything we do. A place where support is second to none and where we encourage you to widen your horizons and your ambitions.
We have high expectations of ourselves and our students and as a whole community we take pride in what we do on a daily basis.
You will meet your full potential if you join Meden College and you will be guided and supported every step of the way so that you leave us fully prepared for the next step, whether that be in higher education, further training or employment.
I look forward to welcoming you to our community.”Holly Smith BSc, PGCE, MAHead of College
As a 21st century educator, we realise that Post 16 learning does not stop at the classroom door, or end when the exam is over. We aim to equip our students with all of the skills you will need to succeed throughout your lives.
We expect that you will take responsibility for your own education and through this develop a love of learning which will extend beyond your time with us. This quality will be key for you as you take your next steps into the world of work or further study.
At Meden, we know that the most successful Post 16 students are those whose education continues when the bell rings for the end of the lesson. We invest in high quality academic monitoring for all our students in order to make the transition from Key Stage 4 to Key Stage 5 as successful as possible.
Our students are set challenging and aspirational targets as we believe that the education we provide is second to none within the north Nottinghamshire area. We want our students to face challenges with resilience and learn lessons you will take with you at 18.
The world our students will enter at 18 or 21 will look entirely unlike anything today, so it is key that you can act on your feet, adapt and think outside the box. We want your time at Meden to equip you with a wide portfolio of skills so that you can tackle everything life throws at you.
General entry requirements to the college are five grade 5–9 grades (including English and Maths GCSE). There are also subject-specific entry requirements for each subject that need to be met.
