High School

Welcome

Welcome to our college website which we hope will give you a sense the school and the remarkable people who work and learn here. MECS has a long history of being a happy school: the staff and students have a deep love for the school, and the school has a reputation for being engaged in its community, strongly focused on its young people, and prepared to produce academic results of an exceptional standard.

At MECS, we believe that a school should be focused on the end product -producing young men and young women able to make a meaningful contribution to society; preferably as self-sufficient work generators not work seekers, and certainly where possible, able to benefit from higher education, to contribute positively in employment, and to lead fulfilling and productive lives, and not necessarily about summative scores.

At MECS, we inspire curiosity, creativity, an entrepreneurial spirit and compassion in our pupils, enrich their lives with the enjoyment and understanding of their particular, linguistic and cultural heritage, and empower them with the knowledge, courage, skills and independence of mind that will make them effective and responsible citizens, and potentially leaders, of the world they will inherit.

Developing the whole child has been the goal of many leading global educators. Those who are succeeding appear to have struck the balance among learning, assessment, and helping students understand who they are, what they love, and what positive contributions they can make to their communities. MECS, certainly aspires to this and has become a place of dynamic interaction where a culture of evolving approaches to education is explored.
