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.

Over the past month our students have been working with Cathy, Dan, Jackie, James, Lucy and Vicky; musicians from Wigmore Hall Learning, to create some wonderful music - see the photos and take a listen!
On Friday the 27th of March we are pledging as a school to not use any electrical goods all morning. We will also only reuse scrap material. We are going to find out what lessons are like without any electricity in the classroom. We are also doing a fundraiser in the afternoon from 2.30pm in aid of WWF. We will be selling books, cakes and some fantastic T-shirts, pencil cases and bags that have been designed by the children. At the same time we hope to raise awareness for Earth Hour which is at 8.30pm on Saturday the 28th of March, all around the world. Join us! Please find more information and a powerful video here: http://www.earthhour.org/

Seth has worked very hard with our artist, Shaun, to make this wonderful tiger. He used newspaper to create the shape, covered it in modroc (a bandage-like material that is soaked in water and then smoothed on) and then carefully painted it once dry.
