Meoncross School is a for-profit, mixed independent school located in the village of Stubbington, near Fareham in Hampshire, England.[1]

History[edit]

Meoncross School was opened by a Mr Watson as a boys' preparatory school in 1953. In 1964, now with Mr Meredith as Principal it relocated to Catisfield House. In 1969, the School opened a girls’ department in Burnt House Lane in the village of Stubbington, near Fareham. This larger property became the home of the entire school in 1983 and extended to pupils up to 16 years old. In 1991 it added a Nursery. Meoncross is now a fully co-educational school.

In 1995 Meoncross joined the Asquith Court Schools group (with membership of the Independent Schools Association). In 2004, the Asquith Court group was purchased by the Cognita Group. Cognita posts losses annually, though it is unclear whether Meoncross School as part of the group turns a profit.

In 2013, Meoncross celebrated its Diamond Jubilee.

The school opened a sixth form in September 2015, expanding the age range of pupils to 18.[2] There are currently 19 A-level subjects offered at sixth form.[3]

The school today[edit]

Meoncross consists of a Nursery, a Lower School from Reception to Year 6 and an Upper School from Year 7 to Year 13, under the leadership of the Headmistress, Mrs Sarah Ebery since September 2014.
