School Description

 The school is a non-maintained special school which meets the needs of 65 pupils aged between three and 19, all of whom are deaf.  A rising number of pupils have more complex needs including learning difficulties, autistic spectrum disorder (ASD), speech and language difficulties, sensory impairment and physical difficulties.  Pupils who attend come from across the country and many are resident at the school.  A broadly average proportion of pupils are disadvantaged (pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those in the care of the local authority) and are supported by the pupil premium. However, the school does not receive its full allocation of either the pupil premium or primary school sports funding from all authorities.  The small number of nursery and reception-aged children are all educated together. The large majority of these children are educated full time.  The majority of sixth form students who attend the school also receive education at York College or Askham Bryan College, dependent upon the courses chosen. They complete a variety of courses, the majority linked to work-based and life skills. School staff accompany students to this provision offering support to students and college staff and ensuring students’ safety  The residential accommodation is located within the main school buildings.  The school’s residential provision was inspected in March 2014 and was judged to be outstanding in all areas.
