Queen Alexandra College
Who we are
Queen Alexandra College (registered charity 1065794) is a specialist college for people with disabilities such as autism, vision impairments, moderate to severe learning disabilities, physicial disabilities and those with other needs. Based in Birmingham, we are a national college, with students from across the UK joining us on a residential or day basis.
Our mission statement is to “create challenging learning opportunities for people with visual impairment and/or other disabilities to realise their potential to work and to live independently”, helping them to develop skills and confidence in education and employment, ultimately helping them help themselves.
We have over 260 students, all of whom have at least one disability, but many have more than one. Whether a residential or day student, a stimulating, high quality environment is key to a successful learning experience for all… and that’s where we come in!
The Government funding we receive covers student fees but does not cover major projects or specialist equipment and resources. We rely on generosity of our friends and supporters to help provide such resources and make things happen. Your help and support will make a big difference, whatever the value of your donation.
