Royal School for the Deaf Derby is a child centred day and residential school which provides deaf children aged from 3 — 19 with access to language (English and BSL), literacy and all curriculum areas.   It promotes a strong sense of identity and through its 24 hour curriculum prepares young people for adult life.

  • Places at the school are funded by local education authorities

  • Parents are encouraged to be involved in their children’s education and are supported by regular newsletters (in BSL video and English), Annual Reviews, Open Day, Parents’ Evenings and attendance at BSL classes
