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."

OFSTED 2019  

RFHCS offers 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's House. From our new base at the Konstam Centre in Highgate N19, we run three alternative provision programmes for children experiencing medical or mental health challenges, a medical needs outreach teaching service and an online re-engagement programme: 'LinkEd Up'.

Hospital volunteers: they help patients find their way round; they offer refreshments and serve meals on the wards; they even play live music. But did you know we have a dedicated team of volunteers and therapy dogs supporting the @RFHCSCamden?
