The Pilgrim PRU is a Pupil Referral Unit which provides educational support for children and young people with complex mental health and medical needs. There are four hospitals within the Pilgrim PRU; these are The Darwin Centre, The Phoenix, The Croft Children and Family unit and Addenbrooke’s hospital.

The Pilgrim PRU is led by Amanda Morris-Drake and Teachers in Charge of each hospital unit. We work closely with multi-agency colleagues from health, CAMH, educational staff in mainstream schools and social care professionals. Children and young people at the Pilgrim PRU range from 4 to 18 years of age. Most students will be dual registered with their own mainstream school. All students receive a personalised curriculum and have an Individual learning plan to support their learning. Students are able to take GCSE and other public exams at the Pilgrim PRU. The Pilgrim PRU provides specialist teaching and support with reintegration back to mainstream school or college and transitions to other placements.
