Welcome to St. Joseph’s School for Deaf Boys’ Website.

St. Joseph’s School for Deaf Boys stands as a unique and dynamic environment devoted to the education and support of Deaf and Hard of Hearing students.

Our approach to learning, and in particular language acquisition and communication development, highlights the specialist skills and resources available at St. Joseph’s.

Here in St. Joseph’s we cater for Primary and Post-Primary classes, offering the most stimulating and accessible environment for all our pupils from the age of 4 to school-leaving age. Our philosophy sets out a framework wherein students’ unique and diverse needs are recognized. These needs are facilitated to ensure that their opportunities to learn are maximised and that their potential is promoted. Our mission is to provide a safe, supportive, educational environment which meets the individual needs of our pupils and enables them to become independent, responsible and creative members of society.
