Queensway Academy in Telford – which is part of the Learning Community Trust – has submitted a planning application for a new building next to its existing Hortonwood site.

The 1,533 square metre building would be a £9 million investment and would provide education for students with special educational needs from ages seven to 16.

If planning permission is granted, construction work could start in autumn 2024 and the new facility could open by September next year.

Queensway caters for children and young people on the autistic spectrum and those with social, emotional and mental health difficulties.
