The Virtual School is not a teaching institution. It is a model we use to provide services and support for the education of children in care and a constructive challenge to those providing the services.
The aim is 'to help children in care to gain a first class education throughout their childhood, including making sure they get into the right school for them and are given the best possible support through the education system.’
The headteacher of the Virtual School is responsible for the education of all Looked after Children aged 3 -18 years who attend school in Hammersmith & Fulham, and also those who are the responsibility of Hammersmith & Fulham and live and attend school elsewhere.
The aim of this new provision is to give looked after children better opportunities to access high quality and appropriate educational provision and services, to enable them to achieve and succeed in preparation for adult life.
