Our Comenius, Erasmus and HOPE Projects
Our HOPE, Comenius and Erasmus projects
Our school community is by nature international, and our links with Europe and the wider world are vital to the work we do. Working across world-recognised hospitals and units in central London, the children and families we serve come from the local area, across the UK and the wider world.
As part of a global community, we nurture understanding, tolerance and respect. We aim to give our students the knowledge, skills and confidence to help them make sense of the world and the importance of their place in it. Through our international partnerships, friendships and professional relationships we bring the wider world into the lives of children and young people who may, because of their medical and mental health conditions have limited access to the world beyond hospital and home.
Over the past 25 years, we have been involved in numerous projects with schools from across Europe funded by first Comenius and then Erasmus. Recently our well-being project Sparks, brought together schools from England, Germany, Hungary, Ireland and Poland.
Many of our staff team are and have been active members of HOPE (Hospital Organisation of Pedagogues in Europe) and we have presented and run many workshops at the bi-annual HOPE Congress, as well as also serving on the board of HOPE.
