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.
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.
Following government guidelines, Judgemeadow is now closed. Beauchamp College in Oadby will be open to children of key workers at Sir Jonathan North, Judgemeadow and Brocks Hill Primary School who have registered for a place.
On arrival we were shown around the facilities in the Vijay Patel building by Jonjo Elliott the exhibitions and liaison officer at DMU.

The students watched glass blowing in action and saw the prototypes of the product designers’ work in the workshops.
As a group we headed to see the exhibition of craft projects with glass, ceramic, laser cut and metal objects. The students chatted to the artist in residence about her work based on organic forms.
We then split into 3 groups, each with a member of staff, to tour the areas of the exhibition. Our group started with the MA and Degree Architecture show. The students were fascinated by the architectural models and the different methods of construction. In the Interior Design show a student had created a view into a dystopian world which was visible through virtual reality goggles.
The Product Design students had worked on a wide range of creative ideas: from a new solution for bike security in the city to skeletal support for people struggling with injuries or mobility. Many of the designs focussed on finding innovative solutions for environmental problems by using the circular economy as a starting point, ideas our students related to.
Before lunch we had time to view the fashion, textiles and shoe designers’ work, with some students talking to the course tutor about their own aspirations.
Following lunch, which was with the DMU students and staff in their new Food Village, we explored the work of the graphic designers and illustrators. Finishing up the day with a walk over to Bede Island to see the very intricate and creative work of the Game Design artists. Our students were able to give some insightful feedback to the DMU students on the success of the gaming environments they had created.
‘I enjoyed seeing the work of the students and the amount of work put into it. The work was very creative and interesting’.
