The hospital classroom is situated on the paediatric ward (IFOR ward) within The Whittington hospital and is part of New River College Medical PRU. It provides the opportunity for children to continue their education while on the ward as patients. This is delivered through topic themed lessons and/ or individualised lessons depending on their need.
Themed topics include:
  • London
  • Humans
  • The Environment
  • Space
  • Relationships
  • Sport

Staff work as part of a multidisciplinary team with medical staff and external professionals including Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), to ensure children have the best opportunity and outcome irrespective of their time in hospital.
