Victoria MSI department is a regional resource, serving five local authorities. Students in the unit are deafblind, often with additional physical, sensory, medical and/or learning disabilities. As a regional resource, we work hard to provide a specialist curriculum tailored for our students with unique sensory and learning needs.
All students follow a specialist curriculum for deafblind learners, created by Dr Heather Murdoch (2009). The curriculum helps students understand, learn and interact with people and the world around them.
News: Our first Cubs and Scouts are invested
Mylo, Annie, Naima, Ramsay and Stacie have all been invested into the 145th Birmingham Scout Group. They proudly took part in the Annual moving up ceremony "a celebration of scouting". Scouting enables our students to integrate with their peers in main school and enjoy scouting activities such as campfire songs, crafting and recognise others in the same uniform.

We would like to express our thanks to all of the volunteers involved in the project; especially Richard, the wonderful designer & Chris and Michelle (Evie's parents).
