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.
We are all getting ready for World Book Day and will be posting our activities here - keep a look out! Details here: http://worldbookday.com/

During half term children made a Chinese Dragon. On the final day they paraded around the wards along to the sound of a drum to celebrate Chinese New Year.
Luke (9) took part in Discover Arts Award which he has now completed and passed –well done! Luke said, ‘I enjoyed the colouring and making the t-shirt.’ When asked what he thought of his completed folder, he said; ‘really good’. He said that he found out that; ‘The Arts can be anything; music words, art, books, ICT...’ Congratulations Luke!
We had a wonderful workshop with musician and singer Hannah Peel. First she showed us her music box which she uses to accompany herself singing and then we turned our favourite words into music - have a listen!
