Kings College Hospital School Room

Kings College Hospital School Room

There has been educational provision for patients in King’s for over 30 years. The King’s College Hospital Schoolroom provides a safe, friendly and welcoming environment in which each young person can succeed, thus enhancing self-esteem and aiding recovery.

The schoolroom is open every weekday, term time only, to school age pupils between 4 and 17 years. We aim to strike a balance of academic and creative activities and encourage each child to take their work home or back to their mainstream school thereby fostering a sense of pride and achievement.

The school’s aim is to enable pupils to continue with their education at an appropriate level, in order to lessen any anxieties they may have concerning their schoolwork. This will help to facilitate a smooth reintegration into their mainstream school when the time comes for them to return to school. By offering a broad and varied curriculum the quality of a pupil’s stay in hospital can be a positive and an enjoyable experience. There is a balance of academic and creative activities for a pupil to do in the schoolroom and they are encouraged to take their work home or back to their own school.
