Cotswold Spa Hospital School
Cotswold Spa Hospital School is a registered Independent Special School. It has been rated “outstanding” by Ofsted and is a registered exam centre.
All patients are encouraged to attend school during term time where education is provided to pupils from Key Stage 3 through to GCSEs and A-Levels. We aim to make each young person’s stay with us a positive experience, the continuation of routine education helps us to normalise what can seem a very abnormal situation. We encourage young people to see the value of education and the benefits it can bring them once they leave hospital.
The teachers have high aspirations for our students and we provide a high quality, relevant and balanced education for all our students that focuses on individual, personal and academic achievement whilst they are receiving hospital treatment. Students are taught in small groups and there is a motivational and positive atmosphere in the school rooms, which provide a familiar educational environment within the hospital.
Head Teacher’s Vision
We aim at the Cotswold Spa Hospital School, to make each patient’s stay with us a positive experience, where the education provided here is as normal as possible, in what can seem a very abnormal situation. Where possible we aim to help the young people in our care to see the value of education and the benefits it brings to them and society at large. We endeavour to help equip our patients with skills and knowledge to help them lead a happy and contented life.
