Hospital Teaching Service

The Hospital Teaching Service provides education for children of school age while they are in hospital. 

We are based at the Royal Alexandra Children's Hospital at the Royal Sussex County Hospital.

We focus on developing literacy, numeracy and IT skills, providing continuity in other subjects, responding to individual pupil's needs and stimulating and maintaining children's interest in learning.

The service is available three hours a day during term time. The teaching staff and hospital staff liaise closely regarding new admissions. Parents do not need to refer their child for this service. 

If you have any queries about the service, contact the Education Other Than At School (EOTAS) team on (01273) 291310 or email
