From its establishment in 1897 with just a handful of pupils to its present day enrolment of more than 1,600 students, Meriden has been special to all those who have passed through its gates.

A good school is so much more than the buildings it occupies, it is about the people who come together to teach, learn, explore and play. The importance of each individual student, her talents and abilities and the nurturing of a loving and supportive Christian community have been central and uniting concerns throughout the School's history.

For 125 years Meriden has proven its ability to meet and embrace change without losing the ethos and traditions that have stood it in good stead. Meriden adheres firmly to three educational objectives:  a high academic standard; the incorporation of Christian values in the educational process; and the creation of an environment conducive to the personal, intellectual and physical development of young women.
