SchoolDoncaster School for the Deaf - An education that is right for your child. Doncaster School for the Deaf was founded in 1829, and is one of the oldest deaf schools in the UK. We are proud of our long history and achievements. We provide a pupil-centered approach to education from the earliest years up to the age of 19. All pupils have an Education and Health Care Plan. Although we are based in Doncaster, we are a national resource and pupils come to us via local authorities from all over the UK. We offer a safe and nurturing environment in which children can learn and communicate effectively to achieve their goals.

Some pupils have additional needs. All have a statement to meet their special educational needs. Pupils are individually assessed for suitability to attend and we admit pupils throughout the year and at any time during their school career. Please contact us to arrange a school visit where you can see our provision and meet some of our staff and pupils. Most parents, carers and local authorities benefit from personal visits. Pupils will be invited for a short assessment period prior to admission and we aim to liaise with other educational settings to provide a smooth transition. Fees to our school are paid by the relevant local authority and education funding agency. The National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS) provides valuable support and advice to families when considering specialist placements.
