Welcome to the Ovingdean Hall Foundation website.
We are now a grant-making organisation which exists to help educate deaf children and young people. The Foundation evolved out of Ovingdean Hall School which closed its doors in July 2010 after 170 years. The legacy lives on and the Foundation is committed to continuing the aims, ethos and spirit of the school.
In July 2012 Ovingdean Hall Foundation joined forces with another deaf organisation the Ewing Foundation. It is now part of a trio of deaf charities: Ovingdean Hall Foundation, the Ewing Foundation and the Burwood Park Foundation. All three share the same aim of helping deaf children to improve their listening and speaking. This is a really exciting development because, as an alliance, we will be a much stronger and louder voice for deaf children in the UK.
The education students received at Ovingdean Hall School transformed their communication skills and future prospects. The Foundation is a tribute to the dedication and hard work of the generations of staff, students and trustees of Ovingdean Hall School. The Foundation will continue their good work into the future.
