Our Vision and Ethos

Head Teacher’s Welcome

I would like to take this opportunity through our website to welcome you to the Hospital and Home Education Centre, based in the City of Nottingham.

At HHELC we want all of our children and young people to be confident, happy individuals capable of fulfilling both academic and personal success. We believe that every child and young person should feel valued and encouraged to achieve the very best that they can and we are committed to working with other professionals and with parents to achieve our aims.

Although HHELC is made up of four separate provisions we work closely towards the same core principles and values, listed below.

We are currently in the process of updating our website which can give you just a flavour of the learning that our pupils and students undertake on a daily basis. The personalised learning approach which we adopt means that each pupil or student can continue their learning with both challenge and security, at their own pace and without pressure.

If you would like to know more about our school, please contact us.
