British Sign Language (BSL) and Deaf Studies are taught by qualified Deaf tutors and teachers.

Deaf Studies is timetabled for all Primary and Secondary pupils and gives children the opportunity to develop their sense of identity and belonging, knowledge of deafculture, and awareness of a wide range of communication modes.

BSL qualifications are designed to develop an ability to communicate with deaf people.  All pupils are encouraged to improve their signing skills and to achieve BSL qualifications. They are given opportunity to develop their BSL skills to Level 2,  regardless of their preferred language. 

Our BSL and Deaf Studies classroom is well resourced with interactive whiteboard, video recording and access to editing equipment.

We also have access to the Deaf Trust’s BSL teaching facilities.
