School Description

Meadows is a school run by the social care charity Barnardo’s. A new vice principal (Head of Education) was appointed in September 2011. Students often join the school at times other than the beginning of the school year. All students have experienced a disrupted education due to exclusion from other schools. The proportion of students known to be eligible for pupil premium funding is slightly higher than average because the school has a higher proportion of looked-after children than seen nationally. There are more boys than girls on the school roll. Students attend lessons at a range of alternative providers off site as part of their normal curriculum. These include K College, Horizons, White Rocks, Hadlow College, Mascalls School and Woodside Farm. The school has residential provision in three on-site houses which was not included in this inspection. Around one third of students are boarders.
