Mary Hare School

Mary Hare is a special school for deaf children.

Benefits of working at Mary Hare include small teaching groups, pupils who value help and support and a close and supportive teaching staff.

Mary Hare educates 250 profoundly deaf children and we pride ourselves on our excellent achievements at both GCSE and A Level (pass rate 97% grades A-E). We offer the opportunity to teach highly motivated children, in small classes, where you can make a real difference at this national centre of excellence for deaf education. No knowledge of sign language is required, as we follow an auditory/oral philosophy.
