The UK’s newest educational establishment for Deaf young people has opened its doors to students this week.

Based in Exmouth, the £10.5 million Deaf Academy features cutting edge Deafspace architecture and technology designed to enhance and improve the learning for its students, who are aged from five to 25 and many of whom have additional special needs.

The Academy, which moved from its former home on Topsham Road in Exeter, where it has been based for almost 200 years, had been due to open earlier this year and the new build was in the final stages of completion when work was halted due to the impact of coronavirus, and the students’ learning was taken online.
