At Heartlands, teaching takes place on a 23 bedded Ward 16 of the hospital. We provide education for any school age child of any ability attending our hospital with priority given to long stay, statemented or re-admitted pupils and those approaching examinations.

What our Pupils and Parents think


" I have never liked Scratch because I find it so hard to use, but today I have learnt so much and having so much fun with it I actually want to carry on exploring more throughout lunch."

Elle Cooke (Year 8)


"As much as I am excited to go home, I still do not want to leave because I will miss my teacher here so much."

“I am looking forward to showing off in class about all the formulae/functions I can now do."

Our School History

James Brindley School Administration Centre Birmingham .

We teach across 11 sites including teaching centres and hospitals in Birmingham. We also provide support for children finding it difficult to access education outside of the 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 our care receives the best possible education in a safe, stimulating and supportive environment.
