Welcome to Blanche Nevile School for Deaf children and young people.
Our school welcomes children from all over London.
Our primary and secondary departments are co-located with our two excellent mainstream partner schools on two sites in the London Borough of Haringey, north London.
We provide a child centred education designed to meet the needs of every child. Both the primary and secondary departments work in close partnership with two excellent mainstream schools on the same site. This ensures that all our children benefit from playing, learning and excelling alongside their hearing peers. Our high expectations for every child ensures that they are given the best opportunity for their future.
We want our children to experience success in their academic achievements, as well as in the broad range of extra-curricular opportunities that we provide. We are fully committed to supporting each student’s emotional and social development.
We are proud of the strong care and support we provide. We are delighted that Ofsted have rated our care, guidance and support as ‘excellent, ensuring that pupils gain the personal, social and learning skills which prepare them extremely well for their future lives.’ (Ofsted , March 2010).
Our aim is simple – to ensure that all our children and young people receive the best educational opportunities so that they are prepared to enter the world of further and higher education and work as confident, mature and intelligent young people, ambitious to fulfil their full potential and realise their dreams.
I hope that you find our website informative and useful.
However, there is nothing like a visit to the school itself to get a feel of what we are really like. We welcome visits. Please see the contact page for details of how to get to either our primary or secondary departments.
