The school is housed in a fantastic modern building, designed and equipped specifically to support autistic children.

In May 2014, Queensway was awarded the Certificate of Quality Autism Provision by the National Autistic Society and earned again in April 2017.
Our school environment has also been awarded a commendation reflecting the excellent environment in which our children can learn.
Queensway South, previously known as Mount Gilbert, has recently joined us under the Queensway name.
Queensway South caters for young people with a diagnosis of social, emotional and behavioral difficulties with additional complex needs such as Moderate Learning Difficulties (MLD), Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD).
Students can join us from Year 5 in our Primary Phase and remain with us until leaving in Year 11.
