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.
