School Description

Huntercombe Hospital School (Maidenhead) is an independent special school situated within Huntercombe Hospital. The school was registered with Ofsted in September 2015 to cater for up to 60 boys and girls aged 12 to 18. All pupils have severe mental health difficulties and illnesses. Pupils are admitted and discharged throughout the year. Some stay a short time and some will remain at the hospital and school for longer. Many pupils arrive at the school, having had disruption to their education. Some have missed many months or even years of formal education, owing to their illness. Most pupils remain dual registered in their time at the school. Their home schools provide work for them to complete, in addition to a timetable offered by the Huntercombe Hospital School. This equates to a full-time education. The school aims for ‘a positive experience, where the education provided here is as normal as possible, in what can seem a very abnormal situation.’ The school caters for four units in the hospital, including two secure units. There are five classrooms: three in the main hospital and two in the secure unit. Pupils are broadly grouped according to their key stage. Very few pupils have education, health and care plans or a statement of special educational needs. There Inspection report: Huntercombe Hospital School (Maidenhead), 5–7 July 2016 7 of 10 are four pupils who are looked after by their local authorities. The school does not receive any additional funding for these pupils. The school does not use any alternative provision. Huntercombe Hospital School (Maidenhead) has not been previously inspected.
