The Phoenix Learning Centre is our newest provision, set within the historic Atkins Building in Hinckley town centre, providing education for pupils in Years 7-10 who are finding it difficult to access education in their own school due to mental and / or physical health. Pupils follow a timetable comprising both academic and therapeutic elements which is designed to meet their specific needs.

For some children, attendance at school may be impacted by health issues including anxiety and mental health problems. If concerns are not addressed at an early stage, they can affect progress, outcomes and the transition process to secondary school.

The Children’s Hospital School have a range of early interventions for schools including short-term commissioned placements for pupils in Years 7-10 at our Hinckley hub, The Phoenix Learning Centre.

This would be for those children who do not meet the criteria for a Hospital Education place, for example those not yet working with CAMHS.

Pupils will join our Eagles or Falcons group for a 12-week programme, three days per week (Mon, Tues & Wed 9.30 – 2.30)

“The school’s approach to improving attendance, including getting pupils back into education quickly, is exemplary” [OFSTED – 2023]
