Ms. Julie Bravo
I have been appointed Principal of Queensway since September 2020. I have been in education for over twenty years and know that this experience will be invaluable in working with the governors and staff in my commitment to bring the school forward. My teaching career started in a mainstream environment in the Wolverhampton area. I soon realised that my passion was in helping students with special educational needs and disabilities and became a SEND Coordinator and Head of Pastoral for many years. Most recently, I worked as Deputy Head at the Pupil Referral Units in Wolverhampton before making the move to Telford and Wrekin. On a personal level, I have two grown-up children and a dog; I think that motherhood has been one of the most challenging experiences that I have encountered but also the most rewarding; they are my biggest achievement in life and have become successful and happy young adults.
Mr. Alan Guest
My name is Alan Guest, I am Chair of Governors for the school and I was appointed when the school was originally named Mount Gilbert.
I am a family man, having moved to Telford for work purposes with the former Telford Development Corporation as a Senior Housing Officer. I have previously been a Governor at Dothill Primary School.
I have a lot of interests and hobbies and in my youth I was a Class 1 Football Referee together with being Secretary of the Football Referees Association in Shropshire.
My commitment to the school is to ensure the school moves forward in a positive direction
If anyone wishes to discuss any aspects relating to the school, I am happy to speak to parents. I am contactable through the Principal at Queensway School.
Mrs. Georgina Roycroft
I began working in schools after completing a degree in Child Psychology; my passion has always been to ensure that all children are given equal opportunities and are able to meet their full potential. I have taught in all settings; primary, secondary and specialist provision. For the last 8 years I have worked as a Learning Support Advisory Teacher, supporting schools in Telford and Wrekin and Shropshire. I am a mum to two young girls; being a mum has further increased my passion for education; particularly for those who have additional needs. I wanted to become a governor to have proactive role in the provision of the education of our future generation.
Mrs. Louise Herring
I am a mum to two teenage boys, one of whom attends Queensway School. My career to date has meant teaching maths in a range of secondary schools locally and I currently teach at a local college. I am happy to act as a parent Governor and am committed to ensuring all students at school can enjoy lessons, feel comfortable and safe and achieve their best.
Ms. Donna Macdonald
I am a qualified humanities teacher with a specialism in geography. I have worked in schools since 1992 within South Yorkshire and Telford & Wrekin. I have worked in both mainstream and SEND. I have taught at Queensway for 4 years and in that time I have developed a good understanding of autism and the strategies used in the autism classroom. I am a member of the National Education Union and I serve as school rep as well as on the District Committee. In this role I help and support teachers and support staff across the borough. I am especially interested in local access to good quality CPD and creating networks of teachers. It is with this in mind that I decided to become a governor of Queensway School, giving a voice to the hard working teaching and support staff. I have a lovely partner, Martin, who is not in education and three grow-up children with spouses and 7 gorgeous grandchildren who is adore. My daughter has recently qualified to also be a geography teacher. Both my sons are in ICT, one in management the other in the Royal Navy.

Outside of work, I have 3 children and we enjoy having family time in the evenings and weekends, including the half terms. We enjoy baking, the outdoors, movies, messy play and having lots of fun! I became a SEND / CiC Governor in September 2020 and I'm here to support you when needed, using my knowledge and experience of working with students both SEND and in-care.
Mrs. Paul Roberts
My current role is Executive Principal Hadley Learning Community. I have been a leader at the school since 2009 when I was first appointed as Deputy of the Secondary Phase. Over the forthcoming years, I have had the opportunity to lead the Secondary Phase as Headteacher before gaining the Principal position in 2017. The role places me in charge of the strategic and daily management of both Primary and Secondary Phases which is an amazing opportunity to see our young people progress through our all through school. Since September 2020, my role has grown to have an overview of all of the LCT schools, working closely with the Headteachers to make the quality of education outstanding for our children. Other experiences that support your role as governor: Having been in education for over 20 years, I feel that the experiences I have gained are valuable in supporting the governing body with strategic and operational guidance. I have been involved in a number of large educational projects and been a chair of governors in two other schools. I am actively involved in a number of educational working groups which maintain a current viewpoint of education. In addition, I also have 2 children, both of secondary age, and this provides me with an insight into the world of education from a pupils perspective which has guided my practice and decision making.
