Thank you for visiting our website, where you should find lots of information about our 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.
In a society that sometimes doesn’t recognise the potential of deaf children, that ambition can seem challenging and distant. Thar’s where Frank Barnes School comes in, believing that every child does have unique potential. We will help your children achieve the academic and personal skills to grasp every opportunity the world holds for them. That’s why we believe our children will ‘Learn, Grow and Flourish’.
Our bilingual philosophy – recognising both English and British Sign Language – and our investment in each child’s individual learning has led to our international reputation as a centre of excellence for the education of deaf children.
We have now settled into our wonderful new school. 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 really enjoy their new learning environment.
Whether you are a parent or professional we hope that once you have read more about our school you will consider us to play an important role in your child’s future.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the BDA and Huawei for inviting our EYFS and Beauty & The Beast class from Frank Barnes school to their special event on Tuesday 4th December. We were whisked away on a complimentary coach, which the parents travelled with us on too. When we arrived at Neverland in Fulham, we were instantly transported to a magical “Lapland”. There were reindeers, fake snow, fur throws and lots of signing elves! After we gulped down our delicious hot chocolate and marshmallows, and gobbled down our yummy hamburgers, chips and pizzas, we made some festive stockings and played in a ball pit area. We then met a very special guest in the grotto – a Deaf Santa! He signed us a short Christmas story before he gave us all a present. Then we were shown how to use the StorySign app - where it reads well known books and then instantly translates them into BSL. There were special guests - Phillip Schofield and Tess Daly, who met some of our children and tried out the app with us. It was a special night for both the children and the parents, and we really enjoyed ourselves! #huawei #bda #storysign
