Mary Hare School for deaf children and young people offers a full GCSE and A level curriculum, as well as a range of vocational courses. We encourage our students to strive to reach, if not exceed, their potential and inspire them to believe in themselves. The majority who go on to Higher Education, find they are able to mix confidently in the wider community and leave their education with a network of lifelong friends.

It is our specialist facilities and dedicated team of trained staff that enable us to offer this to our students. All teachers are both subject specialists and qualified Teachers of the Deaf and teach using an auditory/oral approach, without the use of sign language. We put great emphasis on the development of English using pupils' residual hearing through speaking and listening, lip-reading and writing. The school is equipped with the best technology to support students’ learning and the buildings are built to the best acoustic standards.

Mary Hare School is a non-maintained special school, which means that our students are funded by the Local Authority in which they live. Since the school welcomes students from the length and breadth of the UK and Northern Ireland, the majority of the young people board. We also welcome students from abroad, where independent funding exists.
