Meadows School is a non-maintained special day school in Kent run by the children’s charity Barnardo’s. We provide education for students between 7 and 19 who have an EHCP (Education, Health and Care Plan) or are in the process of obtaining one. Our designation is for students with Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs.
Our main secondary site is in Southborough (between the two historic towns of Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge) on a 19 acre campus. The large site incorporates Key Stages 3 and 4 in the main school and has a separate post-16 provision. Our Primary Campus is based in Tunbridge Wells close to Pembury and the A21.
We offer a broad curriculum tailored to individual student need in order to help them achieve their full potential at school, including opportunities to study for GCSEs, BTECs, Vocational Skills qualifications, Entry Level Certificates and AQA Unit Awards. We also offer AS Levels for some 16+ students.
The school consists of purpose built buildings on the beautiful main site which is sited between the two historic towns of Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge, and a newer Primary Campus in Tunbridge Wells .
Meadows School provides a holistic approach to individual behaviour and well-being.
Each student has an allocated pastoral key worker to work with them and their parents/carers throughout their time at the school.
A bespoke curriculum is provided which can engage individual students in education and enrich school experience with new and challenging opportunities. This will empower them to move on to the next step of their education and careers, and ultimately to lead independent lives.
‘(The Principal and the) staff make a significant difference to pupils’ lives by working with them to develop positive feelings of self-worth and by providing them with the strategies and resilience to manage their own emotions more effectively’
