At our 16+ centre there is a different kind of routine. Your timetable is built around the learning you need and want to do. There is the opportunity to attend a local college or other learning centre where you will be supported by Meadows School staff as much or as little as you need.
We offer courses in many subject areas including construction, animal handling, AS and A Levels, childcare and many more.
In terms of on-site learning we cover English and Maths, Outdoor Adventure activities, home cooking skills and more.
