We are a Community Special School providing education for children and young people while they are in Hospital. We also provide places for a number of students who cannot access mainstream school due to their medical conditions.
We work at 4 hospital sites in London, England:
Our website 'Well at School' provides information, advice and resources for people working with children and young people affected by a medical or a mental health condition. www.wellatschool.org
We have published Hospital School - A Year in the Life, a photobook documenting a year in the life of our school.
There are many ways you can make a big difference to a child's stay in hospital - see here for some ideas.

Thank you for the invaluable music session you organised ... +Thank you for the invaluable music session you organised for the children on Great Western Ward at St Mary's Paddington which my daughter was able to attend. Although my daughter was on the ward for a while her session with Mark and Vanessa from LSO was absolutely wonderful and a real life line for her whilst being so poorly. She has talked of it often and it has provided real inspiration in as much as she is now improvising on our piano at home and I will arrange lessons for her soon. Thank you very much indeed and I sincerely hope you can secure additional funding for further arts and music activities for the children which I feel are so essential for their recovery and well being.
