open3Chelsea Community Hospital School is the first Hospital School to receive the International School Award from the British Council - in recognition of their work to bring the world into the classroom. The International School Award seeks to reward outstanding practice in the international dimensions of teaching and learning.

The Chelsea Community Hospital School is partnered with five schools around the world – including one in Gaza, with which the children communicate via videoconference.

Janette Steel, Headteacher said: “I have seen our students develop in confidence as they enter into debates with students overseas and see that, even though their lives may be affected by a medical or emotional issue, they are able to have a significant input into a wider community. This award is recognition that, even though one may face difficulties in life, this does not have to be a barrier to achievement.”

John Rolfe, Manager of the International School Award at the British Council said: “We are proud to be saying thank you for the inspirational range of international activity that has brought Chelsea Community Hospital School the prestigious International School Award. It brings together young people from around the world - often in need of extensive medical care and treatment - but also celebrates and recognises their rich cultural and linguistic heritage, and ensures their learning continues and develops in a creative, inclusive and supportive environment.”
