The use of English is important because it is the language of the curriculum.  We help all pupils to develop good English language skills which, we feel, will help them achieve better grades.

We offer pupils a full curriculum that is on par with their hearing peers.  Your son or daughter will not be excluded from any subjects such as PE, French or Music as often happens in a mainstream setting.
