Welcome to our NEW website. On behalf of our school community we would like to welcome you to Queensbury School and hope you will take the time to explore our website and find out about our exciting school. Queensbury School is actually the oldest special school in Birmingham. Click here to visit our history page.
Queensbury School is a special school for students aged 11 to 19 years of age. We provide secondary education for up to 250 students with specific special educational needs: MLD (Moderate Learning Difficulties), ASC (Autistic Spectrum Condition), SLD (Severe Learning Difficulties) and SEMH (Social Emotional and Mental Health). All students have an Educational Health Care Plan or are in the process of receiving one. Students are at the heart of everything we do.
The school has had a growing and changing population in the last 2 years, resulting in an increase in young people with Social Emotional and Mental Health difficulties. As a result, the school leadership team have evolved four umbrella curriculums; Discovery, Explorer, Venture and Navigator to better meet the needs of our students.
Our Queensbury School vision is for all students to make exceptional progress, as better never ends. Learning should be fun and tangible. To achieve this, we offer a highly differentiated and bespoke curriculum for each student. The curriculum models we use are engaging, challenging and highly differentiated.
We are very proud of our staff, students and school community and all their achievements. Our staff are highly skilled and dedicated and provide a personalised approach to all students. We work in partnership with all parents, carers and outside agencies and welcome regular two-way communication and feedback.
Overall, we are a school that is on an exciting journey. We are in the process of academisation with The Education Impact Trust (Wilson Stuart School) and already have made strong links to improve the school. More importantly, our students are given the very best of opportunities and make excellent progress. We hope you find everything you are looking for on our website and please contact the school should you require any further information.
