Welcome to the school section of the Deaf Academy website.

If you are a parent of one of our students, here is where you find all you need to know about school life. For those of you who are new to the school, we're delighted to be able to explain our approach and show you the world of opportunities, which is opened up for Deaf Academy students.

In our school the children are treated as individuals and are supported to develop into independent and successful learners with a positive Deaf identity – ensuring they have high levels of self-esteem and confidence in themselves. All students are challenged to achieve excellence in academic performance whatever their ability. Our principal aim is to develop the finest quality learning community that we can through a bilingual philosophy, developing students use of both BSL and English.

We involve parents and carers in all aspects of their child’s education and maintain strong links via regular newsletters, the school website and, most importantly, via an open door policy for parents and carers to come and talk to us.

We hope you will find everything you need to know about our school on this website but the only true way to experience life in our school is to visit us – so, if you haven’t been here before, please take the opportunity to see for yourself the high quality education we offer. To view our next Open Day events, please click here. Or if you would like to book a personal visit, please contact us.
