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.

Science teaching aims to give pupils a wider awareness of how many parts of life work from ourselves and our bodies to the latest technology. It also promotes curiosity and questioning to make pupils more confident and informed citizens in adult life. Key Stage 3 Science follows the full National Curriculum allowing pupils to progress to GCSE or Entry level courses at Key Stage 4. Pupils can study GCSE science in Years 10 and 11, in parallel with Entry level science qualifications, which all pupils work towards. Hands-on practical work is regularly used, complemented by visual and interactive explanations of the concepts behind the science and literacy work to develop vocabulary and English skills.
