Westgate College

Westgate College was established in 1978 as the post-16 department of The Royal School for Deaf Children Margate. We are a non-maintained day and residential specialist College for young people aged 19 -22 who are deaf or have associated communication difficulties. Most of our young people have additional educational, emotional/behavioural or medical problems.
