MEA Central, a Prospere Learning Trust school, opened with 210 Year 7 students on September 2017; we now have a full compliment of 1000+ students across all year groups. Through high academic aspirations, an impressive culture and wide ranging extra-curricular opportunities, we develop students into articulate, active and respectful citizens, ready to go out and do good in the world.

Our vision of a fantastic future for all our students is easy to understand but complex to achieve as the future evolves so rapidly around us. Our students have to adapt in order to build themselves a secure and resilient future. Our vision underpins all we do, and our starting point is excellent academic results.

Our school is proud to be part of the Prospere Learning Trust. Prospere Learning Trust was formed in September 2017 through the merger of two multi academy trusts. We currently employ over 900 staff and are passionate about providing exceptional education for children from any background so that they become happy, confident adults with excellent academic knowledge and qualifications. We believe that our staff play a vital role in achieving our vision. Great schools thrive because of the great people in them.
