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.
We aim to ensure that the transition from Primary school to Secondary school is a positive experience for both pupils and parents/carers.
The transition process begins soon into Year 6 when we invite you to our Open Evening; here, you may explore our facilities, curriculum and enrichment opportunities, hear from our Principal and Head of Year 7 and meet current staff and pupils. Applications must be made to Leicester City Council Admissions Department by the end of October. At the beginning of March, pupils will receive news of their allocated school. It is then that our designated transition team begins the transition process.
We aim to visit every future Judgemeadow pupil at their primary school to boost familiarity, discuss the transition process and answer questions put forward by both pupils and teachers. During these visits, Primary Visit Forms are completed: these forms provide us with important information that we take in to account when creating form groups and choosing suitable tutors. For the transition team, this is the most informative aspect of the transition process.
As we approach the end of the Summer term, our Support for Learning Team invite all pupils with Special Educational Needs to a half-day workshop. Here, pupils will meet teaching assistants and support staff who will be working with them during their time at Judgemeadow.
A major concern for some pupils at the point of transition is that they know very few other pupils, or, in some cases, none at all. To combat the anxiety surrounding these concerns, we invite all pupils joining us as one of 3 or 2 students, or as the only student, from their primary school to a half-day team building workshop. This will cover 'getting to know each other' exercises and help us place pupils together in form groups.
In July, we invite parents/carers of future pupils to meet with their child's new tutor, have the college systems explained and any concerns addressed
Towards the end of the Summer Term, we invite all Year 6 pupils who hold a place at Judgemeadow to our Year 7 intake day. We use this time to introduce pupils to their form tutor and fellow tutees, to tour facilities, to experience sample lessons and to complete a simple literacy test. By the end of the day pupils will have gained insight into life at Judgemeadow and look forward to joining us in September.
