A very warm welcome to you from us, Bhavna Karan and Simon Kaufman.
At QRA, we use the ‘holistic approach’ in developing our pupils academically and helping them acquire lifelong skills to become well-rounded and balanced individuals. We want every child to maximize their potential and succeed in every aspect of their lives. Our bespoke curriculum is carefully designed to create a fun, engaging and stimulating learning environment.
The school, located in the heart of the town has wonderful children and a supportive community. Close to the town rail and bus transport links, we are situated next to the Barnsley FC and Metrodome swimming facilities. The school originally built in 2007, is single form entry to a maximum of 210 plus nursery. There are well maintained grounds including; hard-surface play areas, Multi-use game areas, sports field and has attached wildlife areas for the children to explore.
One of our key ethos is ‘learning and beyond’ therefore, enrichment activities during and after school are planned in to provide opportunities to children to further enable them to flourish and develop vital life skills such as resilience and team building.
We strive to ensure every child at QRA feels happy and safe. We place high emphasis on providing well-being and pastoral care to all our children.
As a school, we very much value the input of parents and hold a successful ‘Parent forum’ half termly, to move the school forward.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our school website. It’s a privilege to be the leaders of Queens Road Academy, which forms a key part of the local community. If you would like to find out more about the school, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
