Donaldson's College is the National School for Deaf children and children with speech and language impairment aged 3 - 18 years, on either a daily or residential basis.

We operate in a happy, friendly, stimulating environment, where children feel safe, secure and valued. The design of the school building including its layout and colour coding supports this aim.

Throughout the school the very latest technologies are used to provide the best possible methods of communication to meet individual needs, including spoken and written English, British Sign Language (BSL) and Signed Supported English (SSE). Our team of specialist teachers and therapists work cooperatively with every pupil preparing Individual Education Plans and communication profiles to ensure optimum support for the individual.

We believe education is more than just exams. Donaldson's empowers pupils to enable them to develop independent living skills and the confidence to transition from the school into further education or employment.

By catering for children from birth up to 18, working with them through their academic life and helping them with transition to the workplace or into further education, we can take a very personal and holistic approach to the welfare and wellbeing of all of our pupils.
