Students & Admission

Students we work with


We provide specialist education and learning opportunities for young people who have been admitted to Bere Clinic. Our provision is commissioned by a young person’s Local Authority (LA) who must first agree to meet the fees for each placement. Alternative arrangements will be made by the LEA to continue a young person’s education if they decide not to commission the services provided by the on-site school.


Family Involvement


We understand and recognise that our students are admitted to hospital from across the country and in some cases, beyond. Through the Key Teacher system, we actively promote and encourage strong partnerships with all stakeholders involved in a young person’s care and education.

We support close interaction between all parties, including parents and carers as we they play a crucial role in the growth and development of our students, in particular when a young person is discharged from our care.

Open and transparent communication is key, and we encourage people to let us know what works best for them in terms of staying in touch. The school provides education reports for Care Planning Approach (CPA) which is led by the hospital.

We welcome your feedback both positive and supportive to ensure your child receives the best education whilst at the hospital. Should you need to, we have a rigorous complaints system, and a policy is in place to support this process. Please see our policies section for further information.
