Principal's Welcome

Dominic Meehan - Principal

Hello, and welcome to Woodpecker Court.  I am immensely proud to call myself the Principal of Woodpecker Court.  I am a qualified Youth Worker that turned to education, I have always been passionate about students that find education a challenge; I was fortunate enough to hold a Senior Vice Principal Role in a large Secondary School where I completed my Masters in Education.  I made a very difficult decision to try and run my own provision providing education for the students that did not suit the usual educational path. 


With extreme passion and drive from not only myself but my very small staff team at the time and a converted garage. Of course not forgetting the very first staff member my very faithful Cavalier King Charles, who you can see pictured with me here; Teddy who has sadly now passed away.  The provision has grown exponentially starting from one day a week with 4 students to 5 days a week with up to 40 a day.  The journey has been a challenging and interesting one, never could I have imagined that Woodpecker Court would see the successes it does and impact it has on the students’ lives that attends here.  I am eternally grateful to everyone that has supported both me and Woodpecker Court during this time.  Please take a look around our website or contact us to arrange a visit.
