We have been teaching Deaf children for a long time at Longwill School and we have developed some innovative ways and techniques over the years.
We have termly Visitors Open Days where you can book a visit and take a tour of the school and hear about the education of Deaf children and see the work of the school in action.
Some of the special things we do
The use of technology
