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.
At Judgemeadow Community College, there has been an active Duke of Edinburgh’s Award programme for a number of years across all two levels; Bronze, and Silver.
Highly respected by employers and Higher Education, the DofE programme is known and celebrated for encouraging personal development and togetherness. So, Be Adventurous, Be Bold.
Each level of the Award has four elements that have to be completed typically over three to twelve months depending on the level:
|Volunteering||Voluntary work in the local community that could be combined with potential work experience e.g. Teaching, Coaching, Childcare.|
|Physical||Regular participation in a sport or fitness activity e.g. Football or Netball Teams/Clubs|
|Skills||Learn or improve a skill over a period of time e.g. Cooking or Music.|
|Expedition||A two to four day walking journey with camping to develop teamwork.|
|Residential||Gold only. Time away from home meeting new people in a different environment.|
Experience tells us that each level of the award provides a young person with new insights into their capabilities and by trying new things it helps confidence to grow plus develop useful skills. The official Duke of Edinburgh’s Award website offers a lot more information (www.dofe.org) and if you want to get involved or wish to learn more about continuing the programme email IAN COWARD, DofE Manager firstname.lastname@example.org.
