Welcome from the head teacher
Welcome to the Oxfordshire Hospital School (OHS) website.
It is my privilege to be Headteacher of this unique school, where, with the help of a highly qualified, dedicated and enthusiastic team of staff, we consistently transform learning opportunities for the young people who come to us from the community of Oxfordshire and surrounding areas, providing them with access to teaching and learning resources that maintain their academic progress.
Values and Ethos
At OHS we believe in putting pupils at the heart of everything we do. We pride ourselves in providing pupils with medical conditions access to high quality education and ensuring they are thoroughly prepared for their next stage in their learning journey. Personalisation is the cornerstone of our pedagogy; the curriculum is bespoke and programmes are crafted to meet individual needs which demands a totally flexible and adaptable approach to teaching and learning from all involved. At the OHS we believe in putting pupils at the heart of everything we do. Through trust, positive relationships and a commitment to working together, we inspire pupils to do their best.
The OHS is a special school with a special responsibility for preparing the young people we teach for their futures, whatever they may bring and regardless of the challenges that face them. OHS is a school where time is precious and where every learning opportunity must count.
We are proud of the learning culture we have created at the School and the strong values that extend from this. Our teachers and support staff are innovative and skilled professionals who have developed inspirational and modern learning environments to improve outcomes for young people. We are also proud of the relationships that we have developed with our partner schools and Health Care Trusts without whom successful learning pathways would not be achievable.
The school is hugely ambitious and rightly so. Staff work tirelessly to improve the quality of learning for the children in their care, making their best even better and going beyond what is ordinarily possible. To achieve this, the relationship that OHS staff build with each young person’s family and home school has to be incredibly strong & effective.
Whether you are a parent, a student, a potential job applicant, or an interested visitor, I hope you enjoy finding out more about the OHS from this website. We look forward to welcoming you to our dynamic and successful learning community in the future.
