St John's Catholic School for the Deaf
St John’s school for the deaf is a day and boarding school for hearing impaired pupils of all faiths aged 4 to 19, led by Head Teacher Ann Bradbury BA (Hons) Msc NPQH. In 2007 we became a specialist school for sensory and physical impairments.
St John’s is an oral school where pupils are taught by specialist teachers of hearing impaired children. There is great emphasis on supporting the development of pupils’ spoken language as well as reading and writing, as the majority of our pupils have cochlear implants. This approach is underpinned by our commitment to the use of technology to provide children with maximum access to speech. We have a resident audiologist, we use soundfield technology, all classrooms are acoustically treated and pupils have speech therapy delivered by an in house team of therapists.
Our post 16 students attend mainstream colleges supported by our own note takers and a teacher of the deaf. Support in the residential setting enables pupils to develop an individual study culture and independent living skills.” Ofsted have rated our Post 16 and residential provision as outstanding (Feb 2015).
