“Excellence in Deaf Education”
Fulton School for the Deaf is a public special school devoted to the education of Deaf and hard of hearing learners. We offer national curriculum-aligned classes from Pre-Primary to Grade 12, as well as Special Programmes for Deaf learners with additional barriers to learning. Founded in 1959, we are the oldest school for the Deaf in KwaZulu-Natal and have a proud history of achievement in our specialised educational field.
The school is situated at 8 Roosevelt Road, Gillitts (near Hillcrest, outside the city of Durban), KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. We offer weekly boarding facilities for those children whose families live too far from the school or are not on an accessible transport route.
As a public special school, Fulton School for the Deaf is partially assisted financially by the KZN Department of Education but we rely heavily on private funding to maintain the school property and ensure the best possible holistic education experience for our learners.
