Welcome to the Ovingdean Hall Foundation website.
We are trying to return old school trophies to the people who commissioned them for themselves, or for a deceased family member. Find out more here.
Established in 2012, the Foundation evolved out of Ovingdean Hall School for Deaf Children. The school closed its doors in July 2010, after 170 years of educating deaf children.
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. As an alliance, we are a far stronger and louder voice for deaf children in the UK.
Ovingdean Hall Foundation is a tribute to the dedication and hard work of the generations of staff, students and trustees of Ovingdean Hall School. The Foundation continues their good work into the future. Find out about the projects we have supported. Please contact us if you would like to apply for a grant (after the end of February 2015) or support our work.
