Welcome to James Wolfe Primary School with Centre for the Deaf. Our school is located in the centre of the Royal Borough of Greenwich, only a short distance from the Cutty Sark and the National Maritime Museum.

Learn British Sign Language

We offer two classes in British Sign Language one during the day and one after school. These classes are  designed to help you learn some basics of British Sign Language. We open our classes to families and the wider community so that anyone who is excited by the idea of to learning to sign can come and begin that journey. The classes are small in size to allow you to learn at your own pace with the support of our BSL tutor.


If you would like to come to either class please use the contact forms below.

Community and Family Sign Classes (After School)

  • Where: Centre 3 at Royal Hill Campus, SE10 8RZ


Your children are welcome and can play the rear of the classroom while you learn. Although this is a pre-level 1 course, it follows a curriculum provided by our BSL instructor and of course you may have sessions you cannot come to but the greatest benefit is felt by attending regularly each week.
