On Friday 1 March we marked the official start of construction of our new home in Exmouth. We are working with construction company Midas to build our £10.5 million new Deaf Academy which opens next year!
Former student, Nikki James, with current students, Lily, Hugh, and Winston, broke the ground. They then handed the spade over to the Chairman of Midas, Steve Hindley CBE, to symbolically entrust the build of our new Academy to Midas. Afterwards students were treated to a celebration fish & chip lunch by our charity partner Krispies in Exmouth.
Nikki James said, “It’s an exciting future for a connected deaf and hearing community. We will be taking Exeter Deaf Academy’s rich heritage with us to build upon in Exmouth. Generations of deaf young people will achieve great things on the ground we stand on today”.
