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.
Following on from rising Covid rates the Government has asked that face masks be reintroduced in all secondary schools for students and staff in communal areas. This is a sensible way to help keep students, staff and our wider community safe from Covid this winter.
At Judgemeadow we believe it is important for pupils to develop an understanding of life beyond education, and of how our core values translate into the work place
For 2020 our Year 10 students will be taking part in a virtual work experience during the May Half Term. This will allow them to understand and experience more of the world of work whilst actual placements are on hold because of the pandemic.
Work experience placements take place for Year 10 pupils in the final week of school before the summer holidays. We work in partnership with the Leicestershire Education Business Company (LEBC) to support our young people in getting the best opportunity possible to help them learn about an area of work they are interested in.
Our Year 10 students decide what area of industry they are keen to learn more about so that we can help to organise an appropriate placement for them. Whilst LEBC has a vast range of partner organisations with whom we work, we actively encourage our students to find a Self-Placement so as to ensure that they work exactly where they want.
With nearly 280 students in the year group, competition for placements can be fierce so it may take a student a number of requests before they are successful. We encourage students to be resilient during this process and to start approaching potential employers as early as possible.
For those pupils who do not find a Self-Placement, LEBC will do their best to ensure that they are given a place in line with their specified first or second choice area of work. Pupils are required to provide these choices as part of the application process even if they intend to take up a Self-Placement.
It is also vitally important that student preferences regarding employment and travel are realistic as each placement comes at a cost to the college of £56. If a placement is allocated in line with a student’s preferences and is subsequently cancelled or rearranged, this fee will be passed onto the student to reimburse our expense.
