Evelina Hospital School educates children and young people (aged 2-19) who are patients of Evelina London Children’s Hospital. The team aims to provide an outstanding personalised education so that all pupils can achieve positive educational outcomes and feel valued, nurtured and respected during their time at the school.
Teaching takes place either in one of the school’s three classrooms or on the ward where appropriate. Short term pupils, who are only in hospital for a few days, will have access to the lessons being taught on that day. For pupils who are in hospital for more than a few days, or those with regular admissions, Evelina Hospital School will contact the pupil’s home school and provide support in key areas of learning.
Many pupils find that school is the most familiar aspect of their life and they welcome the opportunity to participate in lessons while in hospital.
