TAEDS alumni, Tom Kent, completes a GTP

Profoundly deaf TAEDS alumni, Tom Kent, completes a GTP in mainstream secondary before returning to teach at Hamilton Lodge school and college for deaf students in Brighton, where he was once a pupil.  He graduated from the University of Reading in 2004 and current TAEDS students regularly visit Hamilton Lodge to deliver accessible drama workshops to his deaf students.

The fact that he is returning to Hamilton Lodge is disappointing news for Vicky Scales, Tom’s mentor at Angmering. “I’d give him a job in a heart-beat,” she says ” … he is an outstanding teacher and our pupils would benefit hugely from having him around.”
