Living Here

Residential Care at the Academy

Residential Care at the Academy provides a safe and nurturing environment which allows our young people to become independent and develop their Deaf identity.

Our students live in ‘family’ flats; each student has their own room including a workspace, and each flat is centred around a shared kitchen and living area where they can spend time with their fellow residential students and our dedicated Residential Care staff.

We want our young people to feel at home here, and strive to build a homely and welcoming environment, with strong and trusting relationships with our staff. This begins as soon as a young person arrives here and will progress until they leave.

Students are happy and live in bright, modern accommodation which is kept to a high standard

The Residential Care team have good signing skills.
They have achieved, or are working towards, their British Sign Language Level 3 and a Level 3 Diploma in Children’s and Young People’s Workforce.
The Academy has a great Deaf community with evening and weekend social activities. These help to develop sign language and communication skills.
With the support of our experienced residential care team, our residential young people develop their independent living skills to prepare them for adulthood.
And all this happens in beautiful Devon. Residential care is five minutes from the beach and has easy access to welcoming towns, vibrant cities, and leisure and activity opportunities in the rolling countryside.
