Mr Nigel Griffiths
Principal

As the principal of both Queensway Schools I am proud of the efforts of students and staff to achieve the most positive outcomes for our students.

My hobbies/interests outside of school are varied but revolve around sport. I really enjoy football and am a keen Wolves supporter but I will also watch a number of other sports including Rugby, Racing, Cricket and Athletics.

I also enjoy watching a range of Crime shows on Television when I have spare time.

Ms Donna Macdonald
Humanities Teacher

I am a Humanities teacher based at Queensway North. I have more than 20 years’ experience in education, both in the independent and mainstream sectors. I am very passionate and proud of my profession and always try to put the children that I serve first and foremost.

I am a people person and I believe a school is all about the people: the pupils and the professionals who teach, guide and support them.

Outside of school I like to read, listen to music; often singing along and I love my tennis, although these days I am more likely to watch; getting out on the courts occasionally.

Council

I have a commitment to support my local community and to help and empower individuals

Mr Alan Guest
Governor

I first become a Parent Governor at a local Primary School for a full 4-year term, I was then invited by the Local Authority to become a co-opted Governor at the former Mount Gilbert School in Dawley. I was elected during my term at Mount Gilbert School to Chair of Governors and was involved in the successful transfer to the current Hadley Learning Community (HLC) Trust. I have now been appointed by the Trust Board as Chair for Queensway North and South. Having now become semi-retired I still work on a self-employed basis in the Telford and Wrekin area. The one area in sport that was an achievement for me was as a former Panel League Referee in football and also Secretary of the Shropshire Referees Association which enabled me to meet a lot of high-profile names within the sport. I previously worked at Telford Development Corporation from its early days as a Newtown, I have a strong knowledge and good profile in the area having served 23 years within the housing sector. It is my intention that this Governing Body gives every available support to Nigel Griffiths (Principal) and all his staff, to ensure we reach our goals for the future. On a personal note I am very keen for all the children to reach their potential, have a positive experience within the school environment and have the opportunity to develop their skills to succeed.
