The Royal Blind School provides education, care and support to pupils with  visual impairment, including those who have additional support needs and those with complex multiple disabilities. We offer full and part time day and weekly residential places at our school for blind children. 

We provide an education outreach service offering support, training, lending of resources, advice and direct input to staff in mainstream schools who are working with visually impaired pupils.
