Thank you for visiting our website, where you should find lots of information about our small and friendly school.  We have been rated as ‘outstanding’ again by Ofsted and have a national and international reputation as a centre of excellence for deaf education.  Children from across Greater London and from many different backgrounds attend our school from the age of 2 – 11.

We have a bilingual philosophy which means that we teach using both British Sign Language (BSL), the language of the Deaf community, and English, the language of the hearing community. We value these languages equally and want our children to be competent in both.

We have now moved into our wonderful new school and are ready to welcome the children back on 7th September 2015. All of the classes are bright and spacious and fitted out with brand new furniture and the latest technology, including Soundfield systems.  They all have amazing views over the Regent Canal, Kings Cross and London! The children will be really impressed when they see the school finished at long last. We do look forward to showing you around the new school at our Community Fete on Saturday 3rd October 2015.

You can view the latest photos of the school here.

We had a wonderful day at the British Museum last week. Families enjoyed a day of crafts, virtual scuba-diving, a glow in the dark experience, BSL stories and much more.
