Mrs Chilton
Head of Student Wellbeing

I want to echo the welcome of our other senior staff as we begin another year of learning at Meriden. I hope that the summer break brought great refreshment and rest for you and your families. We are looking forward to partnering with you again in 2024 as we encourage your daughter to continue to develop and grow in confidence and ability in herself and in her pursuits.


A reminder that if your daughter is absent from school, please ensure that you mark her as absent via the Meriden App. This is our preferred method of communication about student absences.

Alternatively, you can email, specifying the reason for her absence.

Please note that the SMS number 0418 193 988 is NO LONGER in operation, so please do not text this number and delete it from your phone.

Parent Forum – Dr Judith Locke and Dr Danielle Einstein

In Week 5 of this term, we will be holding a Parent Forum. Leading clinical psychologists Dr Judith Locke and Dr Danielle Einstein will discuss ways in which parents can help their daughter manage her fears and worries and live a life not overly hindered by trepidation or self-imposed limits. Please save the date in your calendar for this important seminar:

Managing Worry, Fear and Anxiety
Tuesday 20 February, 6:00pm – 7:30pm, Wallis Auditorium

All parents in the Senior School are invited to this forum as we partner with you in supporting your daughter as she navigates challenges at different points in her schooling.
