Why Mary Hare Primary?
Our Primary School is situated on the rural outskirts of Berkshire. We accept primary aged deaf pupils from Year 1 into Year 6. We offer both weekly boarding and day places. Our boarders arrive on a Monday morning and go home on a Friday afternoon. We do not offer weekend boarding.
Mary Hare Primary School is open to children of families who wish them to attend. We are also still assessing children who would like a place at Mary Hare Primary School.
We are now fully open and all the children have returned. We have made every necessary change to keep everyone safe and are doing all we can to open up all opportunitites to our pupils.
We welcome visits to our school where you can see our teaching methods in action and meet our dedicated specialist staff. We teach in small classes of eight. Pupils are taught by a qualified Teacher of the Deaf working in partnership with Teaching Assistants.
We work closely with all our families from assessment stage right through to the pupils leaving us after Year 6. Together we focus on our key aims which are to support pupils to maximise their listening skills, develop their spoken English and develop their self esteem and confidence.
We have high expectations of our pupils and, with our expert knowledge on deafness, we achieve great things with them. Most importantly, our pupils have fun in and outside the classroom.
We are in an exciting phase of the Primary School's development and have started to build a brand new Primary School on the site of Mary Hare Secondary School.
