 BSL is taught using a bilingual approach at two special schools: the Elmfield School for Deaf Children ((Babs Day, //Welcome to Elmfield School for Deaf Children// (2017), <​http://​www.elmfield.bristol.sch.uk/​index.asp#>​ [accessed 7 December 2017])) and Frank Barnes school for Deaf Children ((Frank Barnes school for Deaf Children, //Welcome// (2017), <​http://​www.fbarnes.camden.sch.uk/>​ [accessed 7 December 2017])). Both schools serve pupils ranging from 2 to 16 years old. In regular education, such initiatives are not found yet. The schools aim to allow pupils to reach the highest level possible. Of course, these schools can only serve the part of the British population that lives nearby. BSL is taught using a bilingual approach at two special schools: the Elmfield School for Deaf Children ((Babs Day, //Welcome to Elmfield School for Deaf Children// (2017), <​http://​www.elmfield.bristol.sch.uk/​index.asp#>​ [accessed 7 December 2017])) and Frank Barnes school for Deaf Children ((Frank Barnes school for Deaf Children, //Welcome// (2017), <​http://​www.fbarnes.camden.sch.uk/>​ [accessed 7 December 2017])).
