The hospital school

Books in the hospital school

The Chelsea Community Hospital School provides education for children and young people while they are in hospital.

The school operates from our wards at Royal Brompton Hospital. It has full-time teachers and specialist teachers in drama, art, music, technology and modern languages. Parents are welcome at all times.

Chelsea Community Hospital School is a registered exam centre and pupils can take national exams while in hospital.
