About our school

School vision statement

We are committed to providing an individualised educational service to all school aged patients of Royal Prince Alfred Hospital ensuring students remain connected to their learning, connected to their school and connected to their community.

School context

Royal Prince Alfred Hospital School is a school for specific purpose in the inner Sydney suburb of Camperdown. The students of our school are patients of RPA Hospital, which is situated within the Sydney Local Health District. The teaching takes place within the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital near the Children's Ward, bedside in other wards and virtually when required.

The school recognises that all children have a right to an education and the school has a duty to provide high quality educational opportunities which are appropriate for children who are temporarily or permanently affected by ill health or disability. In accordance with the Department's Disability Strategy we endeavour to ensure that all students feel welcomed, receive a clear demonstration of learning outcomes from teachers, and experience smooth transitions between our school and other educational settings.
