Welcome to our Year 7 Virtual Open Evening!

COVID-19 Lockdown

Following the Government announcement, please note that our school is now closed to all pupils except vulnerable pupils and children of Key Workers.  All parents/carers have been sent an email with details on how you can access our Key Worker care.

A warm welcome to Judgemeadow Community College, a proud and diverse secondary school situated in the heart of Leicester City. Committed to the powerful culture of equality of opportunity, we want to see our pupils flourish in to resilient young adults who are kind, organised and work hard to reach their full potential.

We're so excited to e-meet you - and, although we're disappointed that we haven't been able to greet you in person, along with hundreds of other families that usually attend our Open Evening - we're determined to leave you feeling just as excited, refreshed, and inspired at the prospect of enrolling at Judgemeadow.

At our Virtual Open Evening, you'll be able to "stroll" through our corridors in our Virtual Tour, hear from our Principal and students, learn about the Lionheart Trust and our coveted curriculum, and browse our digital prospectus - all from the comfort of your own home!

In difficult times, when many of you aren't able to attend Judgemeadow in person, it was important to us that we delivered Judgemeadow to you.

Therefore, we hope that as you navigate this page, you get a true feel for Judgemeadow Community College and everything it represents - as if you were right here with us.

 

A Welcome from our Principal, Jason Smith, and Student Ambassadors

Meet our Principal and Student Ambassadors as they discuss our vision, ethos and what it truly means to be part of the Judgemeadow community.

 

A Curriculum Overview, led by our Subject Directors and Curriculum Leads

As part of the Lionheart Academies Trust, we focus on the key tenets of Academic Excellence and Holistic Development with a commitment to social mobility and equity for all.

Our curriculum ensures that by the time children begin Key Stage 4 they have a secure knowledge and understanding of essential and challenging vocabulary, concepts and procedures as well as pertinent people, places and events. This is so that all our children, including those less privileged, have access to the curriculum content they need to succeed academically and in life. We have carefully selected curriculum content to ensure depth and breadth of what is being taught.

Our curriculum goes beyond what is assessed and is not designed just to push through mark scheme hoops: we believe that academic excellence is achieved through a curriculum that facilitates comprehension across subjects, encourages independent thought and creativity. It is precisely through our curriculum then, that we encourage our learners to be reciprocal, resilient, reflective and resourceful and develop as confident life-long learners.
