What the school says...

Exeter Royal Academy for Deaf Education are specialists in educating deaf students. Ofsted described us as having high quality teaching, with 92% of teaching good or better and none unsatisfactory, where all pupils achieved very well. Ofsted noted that the pupils do not just like the school, they love it. We provide very high levels of care and safety without minimising a childs maturing independence so that pupils leave us very well prepared for life after school. The Academy has an excellent inclusive practice, where inclusion in activities in the school, and the world beyond, is very important and very effective. We cater for children and young adults aged from 4-24, through either day places or weekly boarding, with flexible lengths of time at the Academy (from a minimum of half a term). ...Read more

Special Education Needs

Exeter Royal Academy for Deaf Education are specialists in educating deaf children. Ofsted described us as having ‘high quality teaching’, with 92% of teaching good or better and none unsatisfactory, where all pupils achieved very well. The education is matched to individual needs and as such we are a ‘very effective school that is very good value for money’. Ofsted agreed with us that we are more a ‘learning community’ than a school, where the relationships and ethos are ‘excellent’. So much so, Ofsted noted that the pupils do not just like the school, ‘they love it’. As a result, the attendance, attitude and behaviour of the pupils is ‘very good’. We provide ‘very high levels of care and safety’ without minimising a child’s maturing independence so that pupils leave us ‘very well prepared for life after school’. The school has an excellent inclusive practice, where ‘inclusion in activities in the school, and the world beyond, is very important and very effective’. The curriculum follows the National Curriculum as appropriate and is ‘very good’. We cater for children and young adults aged from 5-21, through either day places or weekly boarding, with flexible lengths of time at the school (from a minimum of half a term).
