We believe that every deaf pupil has the right to access and benefit from audiological services, equipment and services of the highest quality.
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.
