"Most pupils have missed long periods of learning due to illness. They make remarkable progress during their short time in the school."

"Every day my son looks forward to going to school – to get away from his room, and all the poking and prodding from doctors is such a relief. He is treated like a school boy, rather than a patient, and I think this has as much healing properties as medicine! Due to his illness, my son has missed about a month of schooling, but hopefully will have caught up because of the hospital school."

Parent, 2018

"Wow, where to begin. I wanted to write to you to demonstrate how much of a positive impact you have had on me……you have restored my faith in teachers everywhere...the CAMHS Campus School was definitely the highlight of Springfield for me as is the case for so many others."

"We are so grateful and thankful for the brilliant staff at the St. George’s Hospital School. We have spent quite a lot of time there over the past 18 months, they have made learning such fun – memorable science experiments and story writing, the best time making posters and adverts and treats for the school cafe. The staff are cheerful, calm, gentle and above all fun. Thank you to the great team."

Parent, 2018

"We are so grateful that there is a school/classroom to attend. J really needs something to focus on when he’s in hospital, he looks forward to getting out of his room and working/studying English, Maths and other interesting topics he can learn about. It has really made a difference to his mood during the hospital stays, having been admitted so many times throughout the past 7 months. Furthermore, it helps him keep on top of his schooling."

"J feels that the Camhs School at Springfield is the first place he has felt accepted and that the teachers understand him and his needs. This breaks my heart to hear him say this bearing in mind he is in y11 but highlights the need that there must be something similar to the way Camhs School work away from the hospital and I wonder if this can be considered."

Parent, October 2023

"The difference in him is like day and night. Best place for him -( lots and lots of praise for Compass), these teachers always say positive things about him, seem to understand him, he's never spent so long at school,he doesn't seem depressed anymore, had he not come to you we think he would have not lived Can he stay here next year?"

"It’s been a long time coming but I’m finally leaving and moving on. I want to thank you all so much for your help, I am ever so grateful! I wouldn’t be where I am today if I didn’t have school… not only that but I never thought I could do the things that I can do. You’ve all had so much hope in me and you’ve all been so patient and understanding. Being on a ward isn’t the best…I was honestly getting to a point where I was just going to give up on school because I didn’t see myself doing anything but that thought has changed, thanks to you all!!! You're all so kind and understanding, you have had such an impact on me, you’ve helped me so much and I can’t describe how grateful I am.!!!"

"I want to congratulate you for the amazing team you have. I couldn’t start to describe how incredible teachers, and most importantly individuals they are. I feel extremely blessed to have the opportunity to have their support in the worst moments of my son and my life: and that they were part of our lives. Thanks to your team N- can boast about the great results he has in his GCSEs being one of the best in his group of friends. This has helped his self-esteem immensely."

Parent, Oct 2021

"To everyone at school, Thank you so much for supporting me throughout my admission and making it possible to keep up with all my A=Level work whilst being here! I am so grateful! Sorry I didn't manage to say a proper goodbye and I hope this card finds you well :). Thank you again! I’ll make sure I’ll never be back :) Love, M"

I just wanted to reiterate how grateful I am for all the support you gave me over my time at Wisteria. I am so thankful for all your encouragement to keep motivated with school work.

“To Corner House teaching team at CAMHS School, You are more than welcome, it was the very least we could do. We literally can’t thank you all enough for everything you have done for M, as well as the support you have shown us. The help you’ve all given with regards to the next school and securing the transport has been amazing. I know M will miss you all but after having the opportunity to come to your school he has managed to build on his confidence and self-belief. I honestly feel like this has given him the foundation to thrive at The Deaf Academy. I have filled in the questionnaire. If there’s anything else you need from me please just let me know. I hope M has a good last week. Thank you so much once again. Julie."

Thanks again for all your help.’

‘The service aims to enable pupils with long-term illnesses, mental health issues or who are pregnant to remain in education…… You and your staff ensure that these aims are fully met. Most pupils have missed long periods of learning due to illness. They make remarkable progress during their short time in the school.
Pupils told us that, without the school, they would not be able to engage fully in learning or sit any examinations. Parents value the high-quality teaching provided alongside the excellent care and support given to each individual pupil.’
