Coventry Hospital Education Service box

At the Hospital Education service we believe in providing our learners with a  bespoke curriculum that meets their diverse needs. We believe there is no one size fits all and we will work with our learners and their families to ensure they have a curriculum that seeks to motivate and aspire.

The Hospital Education service recognises that our learners have often faced significant challenges. As a school we work closely with families and other partner organisations across the region to ensure a joined-up approach to achieve the best outcomes for our young people. We believe one of the most valuable gifts we can offer learners in our setting is the experience of education that develops skills of critical thinking, independent thinking and learning within and between specific subject areas. 

We instill this love of learning through our assemblies; tutorials; whole class work and interventions, the skills of reading, writing, thinking and discussing individually and collaboratively promote small but significant progress. We prioritise the mental health and well-being of our students in everything we do, offering a nurturing, supportive environment where students can thrive and achieve. 

You can find out more information about our service via our HES Curriculum Policy 2023-2024.
