The Royal Free Hospital Children's School (RFHCS) is a community Special School for pupils aged 5 to 16. We are a leading practice school for Mental Health and Well Being.

We are designated as a 42 place school for children who are inpatients or day patients on the paediatric wards or patients within the Royal Free Intensive Eating Disorder Service. We also have a limited number of places on our KS4 GCSE ‘Day School’ programme; for children who are not currently inpatients at the hospital but who would benefit from attending the school on a full or part-time, daily basis.

The school operates within a multidisciplinary framework; working closely with a range of professionals including consultant doctors, mental health professionals, physiotherapists, speech therapists and other agencies.

14% of school children have a long term medical condition and an estimated 125,000 UK children miss more than 14 school days per year meaning most hospitals have an education provision.
