Queensberry Learning Centre

The Queensberry Learning Centre opened as part of Georgetown School in 2006. It is a centre for pupils from across Nithsdale with severe and complex learning needs. Pupils’ specific needs are met both on an individual basis and collectively. They are supported by a committed team of staff who provide specialist education and care across a wide variety of experiences and outcomes both in and out of  school. Each individual pupil is a member of a mainstream class and it is the philosophy of this school to ensure that by a collaborative approach involving both class teacher and Learning Support teachers every child's maximum potential is realised. This philosophy of inclusion is embedded in school life as we welcome all new children to the school.

We have two classrooms, access to the playground, a hydrotherapy pool, a soft play area, a sensory room, a magic carpet and a changing area. 

Our school vision is ‘Everyone Learning Together’ and to accomplish this we aim to:-

  • Deliver a curriculum which promotes our learners to be successful, confident individuals, responsible citizens who are also effective contributors.

  • Meet the very individual needs of our learners.

  • Provide the best quality of education for life, with the needs of our pupils at the Centre of all we do.

  • Ensure all learners are active, challenged and engaged in their learning.

  • Encourage all to achieve to their potential in a friendly, relaxed, supportive and inclusive atmosphere.

  • Work in partnership with parents and the wider community to provide quality experiences and outcomes for children.

  • Minimise the effect of additional support needs as a barrier to learning.
