Principal’s Welcome

Hello and welcome to Severndale Specialist Academy, we are a special school which is part of the Learning Community Trust, a multi academy trust working across Shropshire and Telford.

My name is Brian Thomas and I am the new Principal of Severndale, joining the school from the 1st September 2021 and am proud to be leading a fantastic team of staff that support our young people and their families with additional needs across the whole of Shropshire. Our vision is to ensure that the needs of all of our young people are ‘truly met’ and that we ensure pupils leave Severndale being as independent as they can be and are also ready to access ‘life beyond the school’. We focus on developing quality interactions, relationships and supporting positive communication, as well as providing high quality learning experiences in a dynamic, creative, enjoyable and safe environment.

Our provision is split across three sites including our main Monkmoor site, a specialist provision working within the Mary Webb mainstream secondary school and also our post 16 – 25 provision based at Shrewsbury College called Futures. Please take some time to look through the various parts of the website and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions about our school.
