Early in 2016 our committee was searching for a special recipient for our Young Arts Project donation. A school was considered to be the best idea, but with so many in the area to choose from it proved a difficult decision. However, one very particular school came to mind – Heathlands located in St Albans.
Heathlands is a community Special School providing outstanding education for deaf children aged 3 – 16 and maintained by Hertfordshire County Council. It is primarily a day school, but they also have weekly boarding facilities for both primary and secondary aged pupils as students come from all over the country. Their vision is to “become the best you can be” and their aim is to provide a consistently challenging, stimulating and caring learning environment that engages and develops the pupils through personalised learning.
