Pilgrim PRU


The Pilgrim PRU is an outstanding alternative provision providing education for children and young people during their stay in hospital. We provide a nurturing, friendly and supportive environment and have high expectations for all our students.

We believe that every student has a fundamental right to education and must be given the opportunity to achieve and continue with their learning at the highest possible level. Every student has unique learning needs, interests and abilities so we aim to provide an individual programme for every student alongside support and encouragement to help them move on to the next stage in their education.

As our logo suggests, we aim to ‘build bridges’ between schools and colleges to allow for a smooth transition back to the students’ home school or the next phase in their learning. We aim to build students’ self-esteem and resilience and give them the tools to manage their future destinations. We firmly believe that all our students can achieve, regardless of their personal circumstances and medical or mental health condition.

Parents cannot apply for their child to attend the Pilgrim PRU. Referrals are made to the hospital through a medical practitioner.
