The Deaf Resource base

The Deaf Resource Base (DRB) at City Academy Norwich is a specialist resource base providing support for deaf children and young people from across Norfolk.

Our aim is to deliver high quality, comprehensive and flexible support to children and young people to enable them to reach their full potential. Children and young people are able to access this support as well as the mainstream curriculum; both being in lessons and being part of the school’s wider community.
