Celebrating Success Since 1980

Queen’s Croft High School opened in 1980 as an all age school for children with moderate learning difficulties. Led by Headteacher Colin Harris, famous as the author of the Fuzzbuzz series, it had 8 classes and 56 pupils. The school was physically quite small, but has since had 3 extensions. These have enabled the school to take in many more students and develop the range of activities on offer to local young people with special needs.

The second Headteacher, Anne Hardman, joined the school in 1991. With a background in Social Care, she was committed to supporting the individual emotional and social needs of the children at the school. She was succeeded in 2002 by John Edwards who oversaw the continued expansion of the school and its conversion to a ‘generic’ special school that supports children with all types of special needs.

Mr Edwards retired in August 2015 and was succeeded by Peter Hawksworth who led the school through academy conversion on the 1st of September 2019 and saw the school joining the Greywood Multi Schools Trust.

In September 2020 Dr Debbie Bailey joined the school as the Headteacher and continues to lead the school.

The school continues to expand, currently having 208 students on roll, and remains committed to supporting the needs of every individual student.
