Doncaster Deaf Trust can trace its history back to 1829 when Reverend William Carr Fenton set up a school to help young deaf people receive an education to equip them to become self-supporting adults.  

Throughout the Trust’s history, there has been a consistent belief in the importance of deaf and hearing impaired children and young people receiving specialist intervention to help them achieve their full potential.  

In order to provide the earliest possible specialist intervention and to equip young people with the knowledge and skills to succeed in employment, Doncaster Deaf Trust has overseen the development of a Nursery, School, College and Care Home.
