Doncaster School for the Deaf
Doncaster School for the Deaf, established in 1829, is a day and residential school for deaf children from the ages of 4-19 years.
We aim to teach the full curriculum through the pupil's preferred language modality and by teachers of the deaf in small class groups.
We believe that all pupilswho are deaf can learn and take an active part in achieving their full potential.
