Admissions

RFHCS is designated as a 42 place school for children who are inpatients or day patients on the paediatric wards or patients within the Royal Free Eating Disorder Service. 

We also have a limited number of places on a number of alternative programmes. These referrals and any additional referrals to our Outreach Teaching Service are made through our monthly Camden School Inclusion Panel meeting. The Terms of Reference for the panel are attached below.

There is more detail on all our alternative programmes in the 'LEARNING' section of this website.
