Gothic Mede Academy

About Us

Thank you for your interest in Gothic Mede Academy and welcome to our site.

Gothic Mede Academy is a values-based lower school for children aged 3 to 9 years old. Our learning, interactions and strengths are rooted in our school values.

We are an ambitious school where we take pride in all that we do, as reflected in our strapline across the top of our website pages. The staff, governors and whole school community aim to provide a safe, happy and nurturing environment where children are prepared for the wider world with a variety of opportunities and experiences. Through a growth mindset approach to our learning, adults and children alike, we strive for improvement, talk about our learning and understand that challenging ourselves and making mistakes are the best ways to develop.
