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. That’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.

On Thursday 4th July, 21 lucky children were part of Frank Barnes first ever fantastic sleepover. We used an amazing company, Amchella and they were amazing. The children have chosen their themes for their individual tents. This project aims to promote children’s independence and a great opportunity for children to develop resilience and life skills. After school finished, the children got dressed into their wet clothes so that we can go and have fun in the sun at the water fountain. But before we went outside, we had a yummy “Tea and Cakes” in the Deaf Studies room. Then the children had a look at their tents and leave their bags with their tents. The children was so excited and they kept screaming when they entered the hall. Then we went out to the water fountain and it was lovely opportunity for them to have fun in the sun and cool down. After the children had enough of the water fountain, we got back to school to get changed into dry clothes then played some games. For dinner, we made our own pizzas and it was so yummy. After dinner, we got changed into pyjamas and watched “How To Train Your Dragon 3” with bean bags and popcorn. Then it was bedtime so we brushed our teeth and then went to bed. The next day, we got up and then got changed. We went to Food Technology to have our breakfast – we were lucky to have so many choices – cereals, toasts or even pancakes! We like to thank Amchella for making this a memorable night for our pupils (and staff!) Facebook page: The Sleepover Party Co Email: thesleepoverpartycompany@gmail.com Phone: 07368252132
