Chelsea and Westminster Hospital is a large general hospital in southwest London. The hospital has 70 paediatric beds including an adolescent ward and a burns unit. Specialities include orthopaedics, gastric and other acute and chronic medical conditions.

The school provides education for the five children's wards - Neptune, Mercury, Jupiter, Apollo (HDU), and Mars (burns unit). There are two well-resourced classrooms (placed just outside of Mercury ward, on level one) providing access to the National Curriculum at all Key Stages. Children are taught in the classrooms, or if they are unable to leave the ward, by their beds.

The school is open 50 weeks of the year shutting for only two weeks over Christmas. During holiday times the school runs an organised Arts and ICT programme.

We are a registered exam centre ensuring that patients are able to sit exams when they are in hospital.
