Welcome to Blanche Nevile

Heulwen Rees


Welcome to Blanche Nevile School for Deaf children and young people.

Blanche Nevile School welcomes children from all over London.

Our aim is to ensure that all our children and young people receive the best educational opportunities, so 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 potential and realise their dreams.

We provide a bilingual, child centred education designed to meet the needs of every child. Primary and Secondary departments are co-located with our two excellent mainstream partner schools on two separate sites in the London Borough of Haringey, North London. This ensures that all our children benefit from playing, learning and excelling alongside their hearing peers.

Our high expectations for every child ensures 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 and we are proud of the strong care and support we provide. We are delighted that Ofsted have rated our behaviour and safety of pupils as outstanding.

I hope you will find our website informative and interesting but please do come and visit our school to fully understand the warm, unique and special atmosphere of Blanche Nevile.
