It is my pleasure to introduce myself as the new Head of Meriden. My name is Mrs Denny and I have worked at Holyhead School for 14 years. As a former Head of Physical Education at Holyhead, I know the students well and I am committed to raising standards and performance. I am an extremely competitive individual who strives for the best. I have been part of Meriden College since Holyhead moved to vertical tutoring in 2007, so when I was appointed as Head of Meriden I was overjoyed. I am very excited about the future of Meriden College and I am looking forward to working with all the students and parents/carers. It is my target for Meriden to become the best College in the school, and I will not accept anything less than the best. I want each student in the College to strive for excellence and to achieve their true potential. I have appointed a number of College Captains this term and received a huge number of applications for College Captain, Sports Captain and for our Media team. The calibre of students was second to none and students were interviewed or asked to give a presentation before they were appointed. I am very excited to announce the successful applicants, who will be working hard with myself to inspire other students in the College to become the best.

The following students are part of the media team; Baljeet, Yasmina, Leila, Arron, Sana, Shamyla, Sayedul and Rajveer.
We are also privileged enough to have a number of Senior Students in our College. This is a great achievement for those students and I am extremely proud of them. I am also happy to announce that Hoi, a Meriden College student, has been voted Head Boy 2016-2017.
I would like to congratulate all of these students and I have absolute faith that they are going to help support the College. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of the staff and students for their hard work so far. Long may it continue!
