Throughout the school we seek to maintain an environment most likely to facilitate learning for our pupils.
In order to achieve this we provide:

  • A broad and balanced curriculum in line with the National Curriculum, taking into consideration each child's individual needs, which aims to extend the development of the whole child.
  • A commitment to providing equal opportunities and access to the curriculum, for all children and young people in hospital.
  • Attractive and well-resourced classrooms.
  •  Appropriate Information Technology.
  • Consistent and sensitive programmes designed to moderate challenging behaviour.
  • A strong commitment to multi-disciplinary collaboration with professionals to ensure that the development of the whole child is considered during a hospital admission.
  • Close liaison with parents/guardians as partners to support them by providing education for their child in hospital, and advice about recent special needs legislation, educational placements and individual tuition.
  • Opportunities for students to activity engage in their learning and contribute their ideas about curriculum provision.
  • Links with the community through regular creative arts and science workshops, outings and visiting teachers.
  • Continuity and progression by assessment, evaluation, record keeping and a differentiated curriculum.
  • Continuity of educational provision by liaison with pupil's home school and, where appropriate, their Local Education Authority.
  • We can assist in following coursework for GCSEs and 'A' Levels and college courses during the hospital stay.
  • The school is a registered exam centre and pupils can take national exams whilst in hospital. We have an examinations officer who can be contacted at the school office.


14-19 curriculum

  • We teach and support on an individual and group basis for all curriculum areas.
  • As an exam centre we are able to support and enable pupils to take public exams and to complete coursework objectives.
  • Community pupils attending the Chelsea and Westminster and St. Mary’s School sites are able to study for a range of accredited courses following an admission meeting with the Head Teacher.
  • Pupils have access to learning resources through our library, via ICT and teacher expertise, through home-school links, through RBKC subject advisors and our own teachers’ links with mainstream education.
  • Where relevant we offer opportunities to our pupils for work experience through contacts with local businesses.
