All About Paul Whittaker

The rooms at Swain House that are designated for the use of the deaf children are named after famous people who are or were deaf.

Paul Whittaker is a profoundly deaf man. He was born in Huddersfield in 1964 and can sign and speak. He gained a music degree from Oxford University and a postgraduate performance diploma from the Royal National College of Music before setting up "Music and the Deaf" in 1988.

As part of Music and the Deaf he came in to Swain House to teach our sign choir.
