Facilities and Services
Meriden holds proudly to its history, thriving in a long-established garden that has been a calming influence throughout the school since 1897.
To the beautiful setting and historic buildings have been added the technology and facilities of today – purpose-built classrooms, tennis courts, a swimming pool, performing arts venues and so much more, to ensure students grow and thrive while appreciating the past, looking to the future and embracing change. While our school takes pride in continually upgrading our physical facilities, it is the people who come to teach, learn, explore and play that make our school unique.
Meriden comprises three adjacent campuses – Prep School, Junior School and Senior School. Each campus is just a short stroll from the others, and this close proximity fosters a special sense of community and school pride across all age groups at Meriden. Click here to view the site map.
In Prep School, students are introduced to Meriden in a calm, sensory environment at a Federation house set in beautiful gardens. Our Prep School features two main teaching and learning areas equipped with the latest technology. Our young students’ vegetable gardens are a proud feature of the outdoor area which offers an extensive soft-fall playground and ample shaded areas.
The Junior School campus is a hive of activity with 350 girls from Kindergarten to Year 6. The campus features modern, light-filled classrooms, a state-of-the-art library and a dedicated language centre, as well as a music centre, gymnasium and auditorium.
