Wodensborough Deaf Academy

WDA logo WOA-INF02-Deaf-AcademyWodensborough Ormiston Academy hosts an additionally resourced provision for up to 12 deaf students in a mainstream secondary academy.  Our learners have access to both hearing and Deaf professionals. It is the intention that our deaf learners attend the majority of mainstream lessons where appropriate; support is however, tailored to individual needs. Lessons can also be taught in the Deaf Academy or as part of the SEND department, as necessary. A team of highly qualified and experienced Communication Support Workers work alongside the teacher and Teacher of the Deaf in promoting the all-round development of our deaf learners. We strongly believe that deaf learners need to become resilient, resourceful and independent, so that they are well prepared for life when they finish school.
