Shiona is deaf and has had to adapt to the changes of the enviroment around her throughout her entire life. This was inspired by her, to show that deafness is not to be treated so much like a disbility, and to provoke a change of attitude and awareness towards people who are deaf.
Script based on Shiona McClafferty's essay on her hearing loss.

Our wide ranging programme is designed to accommodate all needs, ages and abilities and runs over three academic terms enrolling in January, April and August each year. We also offer a programme of summer courses and workshops under our successful Cool Down for Summer programme.

ACE allows access to all courses and classes, along with a range of sporting activities included in ACE for one monthly payment (unless otherwise stated).  ACE is available for under 16s.
