Our Hospital Schools

We provide access to education for children and young people, aged 3-19, in general and mental health hospitals across Birmingham and within the home (Short-Term Provision).

Access to education is every child's right, this does not stop just because they have medical needs requiring hospital treatment.  Education is a key part of the recovery process for young people and ensures they are able to continue their academic pathway.

Within hospital centres, partnership working, integration and flexibility is key to effective educational outcomes during a young person's stay.  We work as part of the multi-disciplinary team within the centre to ensure that potential barriers to learning are accounted for and a bespoke package of education delivered.

Teaching models across centres vary, depending on the young person's needs and the hospital centre environment.  Teachers may deliver education to pupils in a number of ways: 1:1 next to the bed side, small groups on the ward, in classrooms within the hospital or in small schools adjoining the hospital.
