Southampton Children's Hospital School

Welcome to Southampton Children’s Hospital School, an Alternative Provision Academy based at Southampton General Hospital. Our school is focused on enabling pupils with medical needs to access education and we are organised into three key areas to accomplish this: the General Hospital Wards, Bursledon House residential unit & our Medical Outreach Provision.

Across our service, we offer a broad and balanced curriculum to meet the individual needs of each pupil. Every child will benefit from quality educational time both on a one to one and small group basis. We also liaise with mainstream schools to gather information enabling us to provide continuity for each child’s study programme. Where appropriate we can also facilitate the taking of GCSE and SATs examinations.

We understand that any stay in hospital is unsettling for you and your family, and we will work to minimise the effect on your child’s education and ensure that they feel as happy and supported as possible when being taught in class or at bedside.
