Meadows School

The Meadows provides its students with an outstanding quality of education and fully meets its aims.

Equine Assisted Learning

Equine Assisted Learning engages the person in a therapeutic/learning process to bring about awareness and change in emotional, psychological, physical and behavioural problems.


At Country Care we work in partnership with the Health and Wellbeing Clinic (HWBC) to offer the best possible environment and care for looked after children.


Independence skills are of paramount importance when preparing the girls for leaving care.
