Mary Hare School for deaf children

50% of our profits go to Mary Hare School


Mary Hare is a school for deaf children in Newbury, Berkshire. Mary Hare take children from Year 1 to Year 13 (aged 5-19) across both their Primary and Secondary sites. Mary Hare are the largest school for the deaf in the UK taking both day and boarding pupils. Mary Hare uses the oral communication method so no use of BSL in classes - pupils thrive on learning to use their voice and the use of English is really important!

English is the language of the national curriculum and of the outside world. Mary Hare wants their students to have good language skills, helping them to achieve better grades. Mary Hare believe this will give them more choice as they move into their futures.

Dr Ivan Tucker (former Principal of Mary Hare School) established Arlington Laboratories within Mary Hare Primary School in 1997. Originally set up to make earmoulds for the pupils of both the Primary and Secondary Schools, it quickly grew to the thriving business it is today.


'Mary Hare pupils take great pride in their school. Their behaviour is exemplary. Results are on the up!' (Ofsted 2016)
