Welcome from the Headteacher

headteacher1Welcome to Queensbury Special School.

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our website where you will find a great deal of information about our school and students.

Queensbury School is a Secondary Special school situated in the north of Birmingham. We cater for up to 250 students aged between 11-19 years, who have Moderate Learning difficulties.  Many of our students have additional needs including communication disorders and Autism.

At Queensbury we work closely together to create a safe, stable, happy, hardworking community where everyone matters and diversity is embraced with tolerance and respect.  Students are supported to reach their goals and develop the skills of independence in order to become motivated and confident citizens.

We recognise that our young people have a variety of complex Special Needs and we believe that they are effectively supported by bespoke interventions, in order to assist them in achieving their full potential.  We have a highly skilled, enthusiastic and committed Staff team who work with our students and their families. The teaching methods and strategies we use aim to address our students’ individual needs and abilities and ensure both personal development and academic progress.

The Governing Body (IEB) and Staff are committed to ensuring that all students at Queensbury are safe and receive the education they deserve.

I hope that you find our website useful and informative.  If you wish to know more about what we do please feel free to contact us for a visit.  We look forward to hearing from you!
