The Royal Free Hospital Children’s School (RFHCS) is a community Special School for pupils aged 5 to 16.  We offer high quality education for all children who are inpatients at the Royal Free Hospital. We also provide places for a limited number of children who are not inpatients but who are receiving support from medical or mental health services and may benefit from attending our school on a daily basis. The school operates within a multidisciplinary framework; working closely with a range of professionals including consultant doctors, mental health professionals, physiotherapists, speech therapists and other agencies.
