James Brindley School at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital


At the Queen Elizabeth (QE) Hospital teaching takes place on the Teenage Cancer Unit. A hospital teacher will be deployed to the QE on a needs basis in close liaison with ward managers.  There will be a maximum of 4 pupils on the unit at any point in time.


Depending on the needs of the pupils, a suitably qualified teacher will support the Key Stage 4 or 5 curriculum of the pupil’s home school.



At James Brindley School we believe that "Every Child Matters - Every Moment Counts"

We also provide support for children finding it difficult to acess education outside of he home, due to both physical or mental health related reasons. We find children and young people respond best when they feel comfortable in their surroundings, which is why staff work hard to ensure that every pupil in out care receives the best possible education in a safe, stimulating and supportive environment.
