Queensway is now part of the Multi Academy Trust through the Learning Community Trust. We are part of a family of schools working together to ensure the best outcomes for the students in our care.
The school has expanded and is now on two sites; one in Hadley, Queensway North and the other in Dawley, Queensway South.
Queensway North will continue to operate as a specialist provision , caring for the needs of children who have an SEN statement with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC).
The school is housed in a fantastic modern building, designed and equipped specifically to support autistic children.
Queensway North is located on the A442, also known as Queensway, in the direction of Whitchurch. At present the school caters for sixty students.
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.
Students attending Queensway South come from a wide catchment area around the whole of Telford & Wrekin and are transported from home to school on either the school's own minibus or private taxis.
The students at Queensway North and South are taught an exciting curriculum encompassing additional Social Education to help prepare our young people for life after school. Our classes range from approximately 5 - 9 students who are taught by a specialist teacher with at least one teaching assistant to each class.
The curriculum is differentiated to meet the needs of the individuals with our staff well trained to use a variety of teaching strategies to support their learning. We have high expectations of all our students and expect them to make good progress and leave school with qualifications benefiting their needs and abilities.
Our most recent Ofsted graded us as "Good" and inspectors stated "The effectiveness of Queensway is good. Students are well cared for and good teaching is enabling them to achieve well."
