Mary Hare

The Mary Hare Foundation

The Mary Hare Foundation was established in 1991 by Sir Philip Wroughton supported by a group of individuals who wanted to help Mary Hare School by raising funds. The Foundation is a registered charity (number 1002680). All profits from Arlington Arts go to The Mary Hare Foundation.
Since the Foundation was established, it has raised over £8 million for development projects at Mary Hare School, including an indoor heated pool, a Year 11 boarding house, and the Arlington Arts Centre.  The school is the biggest school for the deaf in the UK.  Whilst the school receives funding from local authorities and the government, these only cover the teaching and care of pupils.  Development of new facilities and updating of existing ones depend wholly upon fundraising and donations.  The work to raise much needed funds is therefore key to the future of Mary Hare School and its ability to supply excellent provision to so many deaf pupils  going forward.

The Legal Bits

As a separate registered charity, (number 1002680), The Mary Hare Foundation has been established to raise funds for deaf and hearing impaired children. It depends on the support of donations, grants and other fundraising activities to develop its work in the field of educating deaf children.

The Primary School Appeal

We’re moving to a secure and even brighter future, and we need your help!
Our current primary school is based in a Grade 2* listed building on the edge of Greenham Common in Newbury. It is a beautiful building set in wonderful grounds but it no longer meets our needs, and is difficult to maintain and expensive to modernise.  We are passionate about the children in our care and know that we could do so much more for them if we had a purpose built, modern learning environment, situated on the same site as the secondary school at Snelsmore Common.
