Who do we teach?
We teach inpatients of statutory school age. We also teach long-stay and recurring pupils younger or older than statutory school age.
Priority is given to long-stay or recurring pupils and those studying for and sitting public exams.
The length of teaching time individual pupils receive is variable and depends on many factors including:
their medical condition, including psychological and surgical factors
their length of stay
any special educational needs, including exam requirements
We may also teach short-stay pupils, particularly if they have previously been long-stay inpatients and are known to the hospital school.
Our school offers the opportunity for children and young people to continue their education, enjoy learning and achieve in a warm and friendly environment.
We do not teach:
out-patients, except long-stay pupils previously on school roll
children who are not patients of the GOSH and UCLH Trusts
The staff and the governing body review the admissions policy annually.
