The campus at Doncaster Deaf Trust is a massive 24 acres! It contains the nursery, the school, the college, residential accommodation and an employment unit, but there's so much more!

We have always recognised the importance of providing a range of social activities and opportunities for our students and so we are able to boast a range of sporting options available on campus. We have two  outdoor sports courts. Each court can be used for different sports including; Tennis, Volleyball, Basketball, Futsal/Five-a-Side Football and Netball.

We also have an indoor multi-sports centre where students enjoy badminton, boccia and many other indoor pursuits. We have a room dedicated to Rebound Therapy which houses a full size Trampoline. Students take their coaching courses in here. Several times each year our sports centre is transformed into a presentation hall and used for both internal and external events. 

The same building also houses a completely new and re-equipped gym. It has safe flooring and a range of exercise equipment including stepper machines, running machines, rowing machines, free-weights and a multi-exerciser. Once inducted, students can use these facilities as part of their timetable or, for residential students, in the evening.

A short walk away from the sports hall is our very own swimming pool. We have equipment to enable wheelchair users to be lifted into the pool and we have fully qualified pool guards and first-aid qualified staff who supervise swimming sessions. 

No campus would be complete without fields and we have 7 acres worth! Three full-size football pitches and a Rugby pitch are currently marked out but this facility has been used for many sports including Cricket and Athletics - running, jumping and throwing!

Of course, after all of this activity, students, and guests, need somewhere to relax and so we have the Warde Aldam Center which houses a restaurant and lounge, both with fully licensed bars. 

Thanks to £50,000 of grants from the Foyle Foundation and Garfield Weston, our library been transformed into a vibrant, lively, bright and comfortable Study Centre. Our new centre is colour coordinated throughout to provide visual stimulation. It has brand new PCs and central seating, specially designed to accommodate wheelchair users. Being internet connected, it's a great way for students to conduct internet searches and researches as a group. A 59 inch internet connected 'Smart' Television is available. There are quiet areas, complete with comfy sofas, where students can relax. A brand new and fully fitted kitchen is able to provide hot and cold drinks and snacks.

Our Horticulture facilities are second to none. Students working in and around our 80 foot greenhouse produce a range of flowers, hanging baskets, and standing displays. A range of these were used by Walker's Nursery at their Chelsea Flower stand and it won a Gold Award! This departments most recent achievement was winning several awards at Doncaster in Bloom, including a Gold Award!

Qualified and experienced mechanics run our Motor Vehicle Engineering workshop. It's as well equipped as any garage and they undertake a range of mechanical repairs and maintenance tasks; anything from changing tyres and brakes to engine and car body re-builds. It also houses a completely professional spray-painting bay. With a vast array of spray paints and a computer controlled mixing facility, there's no colour they can't reproduce and the work produced by students is truly outstanding. 

Our team of staff, in the highly impressive Joinery Workshop, have a wealth of construction and joinery experience between them. Students make a broad range of products which are then sold in our Enterprise shop and feed back into the Enterprise project. Students work towards their vocational qualifications and learn customer service and skills & money management. You can see products from our enterprise shop by following this link --->
