School Description

Ticehurst Hospital School is an independent day school, which provides the education provision for pupils attending The Priory Hospital Ticehurst House. The school is attached to two wards in the hospital’s child and adolescent mental health services unit, which provide psychiatric assessment and treatment for 11to 18-year olds. At the previous inspection, Upper Court ward was a high dependency unit. In June 2019, the service it provided changed to a Tier 4 general adolescent unit. It provides assessment and treatment for children and young people with emotional, behavioural or mental health difficulties. It caters for girls only. Keystone is a new ward, opened in May 2019. It provides psychiatric intensive care for boys and girls. The school caters for pupils with SEND, specifically pupils’ social, emotional and mental health needs. Some pupils have an education, health and care plan. Pupils access the education provision through being admitted to the hospital as in-patients. The number of pupils on roll fluctuates weekly. Most pupils attend the school for a 12-week programme. Some attend for longer or shorter periods of time, depending on their needs. Most pupils are dual registered. They remain on the roll of their main school while being educated at the hospital school. Some students have missed considerable periods of education. Pupils are taught in mixed-age groups. There is no separate sixth form. All pupils from Upper Court ward attend classes together. Similarly, all pupils from Keystone ward attend classes together. Each class accesses a suite of classrooms attached to the ward in which they are patients. The hospital and school are owned and run by the Priory Group. The executive headteacher was in post at the previous inspection. She is also responsible for five other Priory Group schools. The school has a headteacher, who is responsible for the day-to-day leadership of the school. The current headteacher was appointed in March 2019. The school does not use any alternative provision. This was the school’s second standard inspection. The previous standard inspection was on 25 April 2017, when the school’s overall effectiveness was judged to be good.
