SchoolDoncaster School for the Deaf - An education that is right for your child. Doncaster School for the Deaf was founded in 1829, which makes us one of the oldest deaf schools in the UK and 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, which ensures that we know exactly what we need to do to meet their special educational needs. 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.

The School has a full-time onsite audiologist with access to the latest equipment, enabling pupils to be tested regularly and ensure they are fitted with the most beneficial hearing aid. Spare moulds are kept for all pupils so aids can be loaned to pupils if theirs need repairing. Many pupils have cochlear implants and so spare parts such as leads or magnets can be fitted if faults arise so pupils can have continued amplification. The department has forged close links and has the full support of local and NHS audiology departments, as well as specialist cochlear implant centres throughout the UK. The department strives to ensure every pupil has the necessary equipment and is able to maximise their residual hearing and learning experience.
