Life at Meath
Play is actively developed to encourage social interaction skills via playtimes, after school clubs and residential activities. Learning through play is a successful teaching style in some classrooms.
Meath School is committed to providing a safe and secure environment. The school has also achieved the “Healthy Schools Award”.
Our pupils, our staff, our consultants, our parents and carers—together we all make up the Meath Community.
