Hamilton Lodge School

Communication, Care, Curriculum

Welcome to Hamilton Lodge School and College

Situated in the heart of Brighton, our school has educated and cared for Deaf children for over 75 years. Hamilton Lodge is a special residential through school for learners from 5 to 19 years of age with significant expertise in meeting an identified primary need of Deafness (Mild, Moderate, Severe or Profound).

We work to ensure all our learners:

  • develop a full language to support memory & learning 
  • achieve their academic and vocational potential 
  • be safe and confident in the modern world 
  • have happy memories of their childhood and make lasting friendships 
  • be healthy and resilient both physically and emotionally

The school values developed by our learners permeate everything we do.
