Our Curriculum

What will pupils learn while at Meadows School?

We offer qualifications from Entry Level up to GCSE in most subjects.

Our bespoke services include learning at The ARC, a farming environment where pupils get to have their lessons while cuddling a range of animals.   They may even have a lesson in an American Diner. How cool is that!


Pupils are taught in small classes of a maximum of 7:1 often with additional 1:1 literacy and numeracy intervention as required.  They also receive at least 3 hours of English, Mathematics, PE and Science a week and at least one hour a week of other subjects, such as Geography, History, Cooking, Art and Design, Religious Studies and PSHE.
