School Description

The Royal Free Hospital Children’s School caters for pupils with a range of medical and mental health needs. Some pupils have additional learning needs, including some with education, health and care (EHC) plans. The Royal Free Hospital Children’s School includes four different types of provision. The school provides education for children who are in-patients or day patients on the paediatric wards of the Royal Free Hospital. The address of this provision is 6 West B, The Royal Free Hospital, Pond Street, London NW3 2QG. The school provides education for the Royal Free Hospital child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) eating disorder service. This provision is at Queen Mary’s House, 124 Heath Street, Hampstead NW3 1DX. The GCSE day school is for pupils who are not currently in-patients at the hospital but who would benefit from attending the school on a full- or part-time basis. This provision is at The Hive, 18 Harben Parade, Finchley Road NW3 6JP. The school also manages the delivery of the Camden medical needs outreach teaching. The school took over this provision in September 2018. There is an outreach teaching site at Camden City Learning Centre, Charrington Street, Somers Town NW1 1RD. The school caters for primary- and secondary-aged pupils. However, the majority of pupils, those at the GCSE day school and Queen Mary’s House, are in Years 10 and 11. When these pupils arrive at the school, they have typically missed Inspection report: Royal Free Hospital Children’s School 9–10 October 2019 5 between three and 24 months of schooling. Pupils are referred to the school in a variety of ways, including from hospital staff, mainstream primary and secondary schools, local authority CAMHS services and through parental enquiry. All referrals are made through a paediatric consultant. The school does not use any alternative provision. The school is a leading practice school for mental health and well-being. The school leads and runs the mental health hub for Camden Learning partnership. The school holds the Healthy Schools gold award and Artsmark gold award. There have been no significant changes in school leadership or governance since the previous section 5 inspection in February 2015.
