The Royal Free Hospital Children's School (RFHCS) is a community Special School in Camden for pupils aged 5 to 16. We are a leading practice school for Mental Health and Well Being.
"The school provides an exceptional quality of education for pupils."
We offer education to children who are patients on the paediatric wards at the Royal Free Hospital and within the Royal Free Eating Disorder Service at Queen Mary House. We run three alternative provision programmes for children experiencing medical or mental health challenges that mean they are unable to attend mainstream school as well as medical needs outreach teaching service. We recently launched a new online re-engagement programme 'LinkEd Up' - an early intervention designed to tackle emotionally based school avoidance.
Our volunteers support the school service, rated excellent by Ofsted, by helping students during lessons, especially where volunteers have a particular understanding of a subject. They help to run art activities and provide emotional support through pet therapy. https://t.co/XrrEwlnXUP
