HOPE - Hospital Organisation of Pedagogues in Europe 

Staff at Chelsea Community Hospital School have had a long involvement with HOPE - Hospital Organisation of Pedagogues in Europe 

After attending the conference in Barcleona in 2000 we co-hosted the conference here in London in 2005. Since then, many of our school staff have presented papers and practical workshops at the international conferences, which take place every two years. Recently Shaun and Charlotte presented their ‘Making a Mark’ workshop, while Maria and Martin have presented and run workshops for Well at School. HOPE is run by a Board of Directors, and again many of our staff have served their time working with the Board, including Kim, Amy, Shaun, Charlotte, and Marie. Currently Martin is Secretary to the Board while Michelle is the UK Committee Member. 

The next HOPE conference will be held in May 2025 in Dublin. Presenting or running a workshop is a fantastic way to share good practice with hospital school educators from around the world. The call for papers will open in September 2024. 

Keeping updated with HOPE’s activities is now even easier with HOPE newsletter which gets sent out three times a year and you can sign up for it here:
