Welcome back, from Janette, our Principal

Welcome back to all the students and teachers, we have had a great welcome from Lavender Walk who have missed the teachers hugely - and greeted them with bribes of chocolate to make them promise they would not go away again!

At the other hospitals, there has been a holiday programme each day staffed by the learning mentors, teaching assistants, our famous artist of course and also we welcomed back two of our students who have worked through the school holidays with great energy and verve bringing much fun and laughter to the summer.  Thank you all so very much, from the reports from the wards and especially Collingham it is clear your ideas and presence supported the nursing team.


IT Support Engineer vacancy

IT Support Engineer 2nd 3rd line 2

Thanks Lush!

A big thank you to 
@LushVictoria for bringing their magic to our hospital school. They ran an amazing workshop for our children over the summer holidays, teaching us how to make blackberry and treasure chest bath-bombs! Thanks, Lush, you are amazing!

Our students went to visit the new Kensington & Chelsea foodbank, @KFoodbank, taking boxes of food and non-food items to donate. We learned so much about how foodbanks work, and we hope to take more items for their official launch.
