The ability profile of learners is wide, with the vast majority broadly in line with learners in mainstream settings. However, we do also have some PMLD learners and those with special needs. We also teach young people with mental health and anxiety.
The school operates across a number of sites. Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital (RMCH) is the largest single site children’s hospital in the country.
We also teach at the University Hospital of South Manchester in Wythenshawe.
The Leo Kelly School provides a dedicated learning environment for children and young people with specific health needs which cannot be met in any other settings.
We offer daily education provision at Galaxy House, a Tier 4 provision for children with mental health needs based at RMCH.
The school also supports the Christie NHS Foundation Trust - the largest single site cancer centre in Europe.
We offer access to learning remotely to children who cannot attend either their own school or any of our locations.
The nature of our school population means that pupil numbers are not fixed but typically we teach approximately 100 pupils in RMCH; up to 70 attending the Leo Kelly School, up to 15 at Galaxy House and 16 at the Christie.
