The School is open to all inpatients at Marlborough House from Key Stage 3 to Key Stage 5 (Year 13).
At the start of the each school day, patients’
educational needs are assessed; those who are able to attend the school
to participate in a morning of learning.
Where appropriate the school teachers will liaise
with the pupil’s school to keep them informed of the pupil's progress.
The school can accommodate pupils in wheelchairs.
What do we teach?
A pupil’s home school curriculum is our first choice for
teaching and learning. If this is not available (or not suitable), various
strategies are used to promote engagement, teaching and learning. The teaching
focus is on engagement and core curriculum, plus a variety of additional subjects, as well as community activities.
In collaboration with a pupil’s school, we facilitate
pupils to sit any external exams, for example, GCSEs.
