We are always pleased to share information about our school and therefore hope that you will contact us should you require further details. If there is information or resources that you would like to have available on our website, then we would be very pleased to hear from you with your suggestion.
Beyond education, we offer a wide ride range of extra-curricular opportunities from clubs and societies through to charity and community opportunities. At the heart of everything we do is preparing young people for the next steps in their lives. We want to see our pupils flourish into independent, resilient and mature young people who are kind, organised and work hard to reach their full potential regardless of their background.
At Judgemeadow, we pride ourselves on making sure that our school not only offers the best academic opportunities, but is also able to provide a pastoral system which focuses on safety, well-being, and enriching pupil’s educational experiences so that young people are able to fully thrive. Every young person is a valued individual and we have the environment for them to achieve their goals; parents will know they can feel safe in the knowledge that their child will be nurtured to be everything they want to be.

The Judgemeadow curriculum is designed to ensure that all pupils have a rewarding and enjoyable experience of school. To us this means that learning is a challenging and stimulating experience; one that successfully prepares pupils for their future.
Promoting a career development culture is an essential part of the mission and ethos of our college. We aim to support the aspirations of all our students and to ensure that they gain the understanding, skills and experience they need to make progress and succeed in learning and work. We believe that effective careers education, information and guidance not only contributes to the well-being of individuals but also to the wellbeing of their families, the communities to which they belong, wider society, businesses and the economy.
Students can choose from a range of over 20 extra curricular activities which range from those that explore a passion for science to art and design, music and sport. We encourage all of our pupils to pursue their extra curricula interests, supporting them beyond the curriculum to ensure they are well rounded young people. Performances throughout the year ensure that our students are able to share their talents with parents and other young people in the school, giving our students a platform on which to showcase their talent.
There is a wide range of food available at break time and lunchtime; hot meals are provided in the main dining area and quicker meals, including snacks, can be found in our deli.
At Judgemeadow we cater for all dietary needs and requirements; halal, meat and vegetarian options are provided. Meals are selected with pupil involvement and menus are reviewed regularly by the Health Co-ordinator and Cook Supervisor with input from Student Council representatives. Our catering team often produce menus in celebration of international events and festivals: for instance, on European Day of Languages, pupils were given the option to purchase French pastries. Oriental dishes were also served on Chinese New Year.
Pupils have access to fresh drinking water at drinking stations throughout the college.
Food prepared by the college catering team complies with the Government School Foods Standards which seek to ensure healthy, tasty and nutritious food and drink is provided for all.
The college operates a cashless catering system. All pupils are issued with an ID card which allows them to purchase food from our dining facilities. The cost of a school meal for pupils is £2.05.
Credit can be placed onto the card in the following ways:
If a child receives a free school meal the credit will be automatically placed onto the card by the College. Parents can choose to credit further monies if required. When your child visits the dining area and buys food, credit will be deducted from the card.
One in five students in England are entitled to a free school meal. On average a family with 2 children spends over £600 per school year on school meals so it’s well worth checking out your entitlement. For more information please view our free school meals page.
Even if you don’t want the free school meals we would still encourage you to apply. The more children in school who are entitled to free school meals, the more funding the school will get – this will benefit all Judgemeadow students.
Our meat is halal certified. You can view our halal certification here
