Hospital and Outreach Education (HOE) is an Alternative Provision (AP) Academy, part of The Skylark Partnership Multi Academy Trust. HOE provides holistic educational support for students with medical and mental health needs that prevent them from attending their main school full time. The AP Academy provides teaching across seven different centres:
Two outreach centres: Delapre Learning Centre in Northampton and The Gatehouse in Kettering
Two general hospitals: Northampton General Hospital and Kettering General Hospital
Two inpatient Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMHs) units: The Sett and The Burrows
One eating disorder unit: The Brambles
and within the community.
All students have a diagnosed medical/mental health condition which significantly impacts on their functioning and ability to engage with education. Most of our students are not attending school at all before they are dual registered with HOE as their subsidiary school. Strong links are maintained with their main school and our aim is to reintegrate pupils back to their school as soon as possible.
