Martin was presented with a 20 year Long Service Award by the Mayor of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Councillor Mrs Elizabeth Rutherford. “I’m delighted to join the esteemed CCHS 20year+ club! It just goes to show what an amazing place the Hospital School is to work” - Martin
There were a lot of empty plates! We can’t believe we didn’t get a picture of the spread, including the famous “Mikey’s Cakes” Guinness cake. But there was a good turnout including nurses, doctors, wider MDT members, governors, and Marie’s current and former colleagues in CCHS. They all went back full of sweetness and memories of Marie, brought back by the lovely slide show.
We are a Community Hospital School providing education for children while they are in hospital. We also teach students who cannot access mainstream education due to medical or mental health conditions. We work across four hospitals in London, England.
School at hospital was a success for my daughter +"School at hospital was a success for my daughter. She loved it. More emphasis on school work during term time would be good but understand why not so easy to achieve. Thank you." Read More

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.

The tomato plants are taking over the St Mary's classroom! Even though they were only planted at Easter, they're already bearing fruits. We are not sure that they will be ready for pasta sauce or ketchup recipes by the time summer is here, and no doubt the holiday programme participants will want to eat them all. But it's exciting that Science can remind us of awe and wonder as well as the passing of time!
