About us

Our school is committed to the continuity of education for children who have been hospitalised at both Primary and Post-Primary level. We provide education in a caring and compassionate environment.

We adapt the education to meet the individual needs of children and adolescents aged four to eighteen years.

Children can be:

  • In-patients

  • Patients or siblings of patients who reside in hospital owned accommodation

  • Repeat day-patients

  • Patients from the hospital attending other hospitals for treatment

  • Siblings of patients when there is no alternative available

  • Post Primary students who are under 18 years of age, and are parents of children who are in-patients of the hospital

Every morning the school staff visit the wards and collect pupils for school. You don’t need to worry if you haven’t brought your uniform with you!  Pyjamas and slippers will do just fine.  If you don’t have a schoolbag, that’s not a problem either – everything you need will be available in the classroom. If you have a hospital appointment, a dressing that needs to be done, bloods to be taken, just come down to the classroom when you are ready!
