Stories and latest news from our students

At Exeter Deaf Academy, we welcome deaf children and young people from across the UK. We are a bilingual day and residential school and college for
5-25 year olds, teaching in English and British Sign Language. Our aim is to give our students the confidence, communication skills, education and support network they need to
achieve their goals, and dream big.
