A message from the Executive Head Teacher Mr Steve Hughes:
“I am delighted to welcome you to the Wilson Stuart School website.

We have high expectations for our students and have created an environment in which each individual is supported and challenged to achieve their full potential, both inside and outside the classroom. Accordingly, we expect our students to be ready to learn, to work hard and to take pride in their achievements. Wilson Stuart has developed a range of excellent facilities to support student learning. We also have an exciting and rich curriculum which provides all of our students the opportunity to experience and enjoy a wide range of activities. We believe that working together pays dividends. We have a very active Parents Association and we offer a great deal of support to enable parents to support the education of their children. We have outstanding relationships with our local community, schools and businesses, their partnerships providing great benefits to our school and students. We hope you find our web-site interesting and informative. If you would like any further information please contact school by telephone or e-mail.”
The Albrighton Trust, Moat and Gardens offers educational and recreational activities for people disadvantaged by disability, special needs or illness, who are welcomed and supported whatever their capability. All activities are either inspired by or involve the outdoor environment and the first class facilities are specifically designed to ensure everyone, regardless of disability or capability can experience the joy and satisfaction of engaging in positive, outdoor activity.
4.2 enjoyed the most fabulous of days in which they had 2 x 1 hours of fishing on a gloriously, sunny day and fish were being caught within minutes of starting.
We were shown how to put the maggots onto the hook, and some of us were able to do this with just a little help and all the fish were safely put back into the water.
Of course, the beautiful weather helped greatly but the facilities and support available was exceptional, and although we did not have time on the day, there are other activities on offer. I would urge you all to investigate some of their holiday activities in case it might be of interest and the Web address is http://www.albrightontrust.org.uk
Everybody caught fish and some were quite an impressive size, but our star of the day was Vladislavs.

For all those who have any disability who are soon to be or are
currently job seeking – this is a fantastic opportunity for them to meet and
chat with some disability confident employers.
It is a chance to find out about some available positions and also
to practice selling their talents including those unique skills learned through
managing disability – great practice for interviews in the future, and also to
see what support companies can offer to applicants with different disabilities.

On 20th March we had an Ofsted section 8 one day short inspection as we are an outstanding school!
The inspection is carried out to judge whether the school has continued to improve and remains outstanding. I am delighted to report that Ofsted were of the view that this is certainly the case. The report can be viewed by clicking here, it is a glowing report and reflects upon our outstanding students, governors, staff, parents and partners. I am sure you will enjoy reading the report and feel very proud, as we all are of the outcome and judgement made.

we broke up for the Easter holidays students from 4.1 and 5.1 spent the morning
running sessions, based around the legend of St George and knowing right from
wrong for our secondary pupils! The activities included, amongst others, a
sensory re-telling of the St George story and a very lively “throw the water
balloon at the dragon” game!
These sessions had been planned, resourced and delivered by 4.1 and 5.1 with very minimal staff support and it has to be said that they all did a brilliant job!
Many classes have taken part in making an ‘egg’ themed piece of art, they are amazing! There work is so impressive it will be on display at a real art gallery over the Easter holiday!
Their sculptures and paintings will be on display at Direct Art Action UK Gallery, Sutton Coldfield over the Easter holiday. (If you know Sutton Coldfield – it’s where BHS was!)
It is flat, good disabled access, disabled parking at Grace church car park and good disabled toilet facilities (you do need to get security key from office) I hope you are able visit and enjoy this brilliant celebration!
