School Description

The school provides full-time education within Ellingham Hospital, which is a specialist low-secure unit for patients aged between 12 and 25 years with complex mental health needs who are admitted under the Mental Health Act. Ellingham Hospital School is registered for 17 male and female pupils from the ages of 12 to 18 years. The school is currently oversubscribed as there are currently 20 pupils within this age range on roll. Pupils are resident in the hospital and are registered in the school. Pupils join and leave the school throughout the school year, depending on each patient’s hospital admission and discharge dates. Nearly all of the pupils have a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan arising from their complex social, emotional and mental health difficulties. A few are looked after by the local authority. The school was opened as Oakview School East Anglia in September 2014 by Danshell Company Limited, and changed its name to Ellingham Hospital School when Partnerships in Care Limited took over the hospital and the school in September 2015. The ethos of the school is: ‘High expectations, Empower and Support’. The pupils’ home local authorities fund the school and pupils are offered an average of 18 hours of education each week. The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. The headteacher leads both Ellingham Hospital School and a partner school in Kent. The headteacher took up her post in February 2014 before Partnerships in Care Limited took over the school.
