Mission statement

At WHHTS our core values are:
Curiosity and creativity
Respect and kindness
Resilience and advocacy

We believe in a holistic approach to learning; we ensure that all children have the best possible education during an unsettling period in their lives. We foster a sense of wonder and aim to bring a love of learning that they can take with them throughout life. We consider a student’s holistic development to be as valuable as their academic progress. We encourage ourselves and our young people to develop resilience, empathy and advocacy in order to work towards an equitable society for all.

HHTS joins together every facet of our students’ care with their personal learning journey. Through respectful and kind relationships, individualised learning and dynamic interventions we ensure our students have every opportunity to discover and realise their potential and aspirations.

To engender curiosity and creativity we will:

  • create and engage in new ideas and experiences
  • challenge ourselves to grasp opportunities, make mistakes and grow from these experiences
  • explore and work towards our aspirations and ambitions
  • encourage curiosity, creativity and lifelong learning in ourselves and others
  • think critically, develop intellectual curiosity and make beautiful work.
  • seek to learn about cultures and beliefs beyond our own

To develop confidence and advocacy we will:

  • endeavour to be flexible and embrace change to navigate the ever-changing world
  • be active members of the global community and work towards equity for all
  • advocate for ourselves and others with respect and empathy
  • express our opinions and ideas while listening to those of others
  • build hope and confidence to overcome adversity 

To ensure respect and kindness we will:


  • create a calm and focused learning environment in which everyone can learn effectively
  • support others self-worth, love of life and hope for future
  • develop and communicate empathy to support healthy relationships
  • recognise, value and celebrate individuality and diversity in our community and in the wider world
  • nurture self-acceptance, self-respect and compassion for others

‘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. Rest assured if I ever get involved in the murky world of politics your funding will be quadrupled, ring-fenced and seared forever.’
‘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.’
‘We were so grateful to the teaching team. They have been absolutely fantastic. My daughter had surgery on Monday and was quiet and withdrawn. This has been instrumental in her recovery and also kept her mind on education whilst she’s been sick.’
‘Everyday 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.’
‘We are so grateful and happy for the care and support – teachers are so helpful and very kind, we love you all for your hard work, keep it up. Thanks so much.’
‘Thank you for the range of learning opportunities you provided my son in hospital for the week for the week he was on the neuro ward. He found the activities very engaging and accessible. He thoroughly enjoys maths and looked forward to the activities you provided for this – he is especially looking forward to the spreadsheet analysis this afternoon. he enjoys music and was surprised to have the opportunity to learn about and play different instruments. Thanks again for all your help.’
‘We are so grateful that there is a school/classroom to attend. Josie 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.’
‘Thank you for helping me for the past 10 months. You have helped me to keep as motivated and hopeful for my future as I could have been. I cant wit to start college and maybe become a paramedic. I’ll always remember this school and everyone in it’
‘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.’

Keeping Yourself Safe

We offer personalised support to our pupils in their choices for the next stage of education, employment, and self-employment or training. We ensure that all of our long-term pupils receive careers guidance.

As well as a careers focus to each of the subjects taught, we also host a dedicated Careers Week in March. 

We are already implementing the Gatsby Benchmarks - a framework of 8 guidelines that define the best careers provision in schools and colleges.

As well as working alongside the multi-disciplinary teams on the wards to help support next steps in education/employment for our pupils, we work closely with schools and colleges to ensure the best pathway forwards.

Our Careers Lead is Lynda Robinson and she can be contacted at admin@hhts.wandsworth.sch.uk

Unifrog is an online platform that supports schools and colleges to deliver their statutory duty to provide students with impartial and independent guidance on the full range of Post-16 and Post-18 options.

Unifrog is the only place where students can compare every undergraduate course in the UK as well as international opportunities. Additionally, Unifrog provides students with access to the most comprehensive list of live apprenticeships available across the country including Higher, SLP and degree apprenticeships, as well as FE courses.

Once students have explored their interests and compared the full range of pathways available to them, Unifrog provides one place for students to draft all materials needed for applications such as CVs and Personal Statements.

All students, across all year groups, now have access to the platform in keeping with our commitment to provide students with outstanding careers guidance and tailored support when choosing their next step.
