Welcome to Meadowbrook College

Thank you very much for taking the time to visit our website. Located across four sites in Oxfordshire: Banbury, Kidlington, Oxford and Abingdon, we are an Alternative Provision (AP) Academy that provides full and part-time education and support to over 150 aged 5-16 students who are excluded from, or finding it difficult to fully access, their mainstream schools. 

Meadowbrook College offers all its students another chance and provides a high quality, safe learning environment in which to develop positive behaviours and skills which they can use to improve their life chances. We work hard to ensure our young people achieve the best outcomes by creating individual educational packages which meet their needs, equipping them for their next destination.

Our hope for our students is that they will re-engage with learning, become more confident, be successful and achieve their goals.  Our aim is for every one of our students to move on to college, school, an apprenticeship or employment.

Please enjoy browsing through the website - we hope it provides useful information: for students, parents/carers and schools, on the many different programmes and services we have on offer.  If you would like to find out more, please give us a call.

  • 6 months ago my daughter didn't see a future for herself, now she's asking for work and talking about exams and hoping she'll get her Maths and English. That's more than I ever could have hoped for. Because of you my daughter is starting to believe in herself. I don't have the words to thank you enough! Parent of Meadowbrook College Student

  • I wanted to let you know how well I am doing in school. I have been going to my lessons: English, Maths, Science and Art. In Art we are doing collages and my Art Teacher says I have worked amazingly well. My attitude is a lot better. I am more positive with my teachers and my work, and this makes me feel better. I am in school all day now and my teachers say that I’ve been "helpful, polite and superb". A real delight!Former On Course Student, 2017
