We’ve been changing the lives of Deaf young people for over 190 years.

Our charity is the UK’s oldest specialist Deaf education provider. Today we operate a school, college and residential care for young people aged 4-24 from throughout the country based in Exeter, Devon. However, we are not funded in the same way as state schools and therefore rely on fundraising support and volunteers to help us change the lives of Deaf young people.

What can you do to support our essential work?
A new future for Exeter Deaf Academy

We recently announced our exciting plans to build a new world class Deaf Academy on the former Rolle College campus in Exmouth. The seven acre site, formerly owned by the University of Plymouth, will provide distinct identities for our school and college, ground level accessibility for students with physical disabilities and an opportunity to build enough residential accommodation to keep pace with a growing student population with increasingly complex needs.

Contracts have been exchanged with the University of Plymouth and work is starting on a planning application to East Devon District Council. We are currently negotiating the sale of our current site on Topsham Road. In order to make our ambition to build a new Academy in Exmouth a reality we will be launching a major fundraising campaign to raise the significant funds we will still need.

We hope you will enjoy exploring our site and finding out about all the ways you can get involved.

Many thanks for your support from all our students and staff.
