Frequently Asked Questions

How many hospital schools are there? 
There are a small number of hospital schools in the U.K. and many hospital education services. 

Do you need any special qualifications or experience? 
As a teacher, it is essential to have a broad curriculum knowledge and to be confident teaching a wide age range.  All staff require an understanding of special needs and an ability to be flexible.  Unfortunately, we are not able to employ newly qualified teachers, as working in hospital requires some experience. 

 

Do you have volunteers? 
We have some excellent volunteers, some of whom have worked with us for many years.  In fact, one of our qualified volunteers became a teacher at the Royal Brompton Hospital. 

 

Are you open throughout the year? 
Clearly, children in hospital do not fall neatly into term time only, so as well as the school curriculum being delivered on a termly basis, we also have an arts and crafts programme during the holidays. The programme is run by one of our youth workers. 

 

Do you have evening sessions? 
At the Royal Brompton Hospital, we run a youth club for children age 11+ two evenings a week.  

 

Where can I find out about vacancies? 

All our vacancies are initially posted on our website so do check from time to time.   We also advertise on the DfE teaching vacancies website. 

 

Is it worth sending my CV for future posts? 
We do keep a file for people who are interested in being considered for a post in the future.
