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.

"The school provides an exceptional quality of education for pupils."

OFSTED 2019  

The school is currently based across 4 sites. As well as offering 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 also offer a limited number of places on two alternative provision programmes for children experiencing medical or mental health challenges that mean they are unable to attend mainstream school. The school also manages the medical needs outreach teaching service for the local authority.
