Bethlem and Maudsley Hospital School pupils take most exams on record
This summer has been a busy one for Bethlem and Maudsley Hospital School, as pupils have sat more exams than ever during the GCSE and A Level season. The school hosted a total of 195 formal external examinations this year, which is a great testament to the resilience and determination of the pupils who worked so hard over recent weeks. Exams are stressful for all pupils, but to undertake them whilst receiving treatment in hospital and during a difficult time in their lives is additionally impressive. Pupils were supported in lessons by teachers to cover any remaining areas of the curriculum and plan revision timetables.
Maarten Crommelin, deputy headteacher at the school said: “Exams were managed for pupils from the Snowsfields Adolescent Unit, the Bethlem Adolescent Unit, the Intensive Treatment Programme and the Enhanced Treatment Service. These pupils came to us from a range of schools, many following different exam courses with different demands and regulations….Some pupils had no schools of their own place and were entered for the examinations by The Bethlem and Maudsley Hospital School.”
