At Priory Education & Children's Services, we are proud of our reputation for delivering quality education and care services with positive outcomes for children and young people aged 5 to 25 who have experienced difficulties in their previous education placements.

Ticehurst Hospital School is an independent co-educational day school for young people aged 11 to 18. Our students are all inpatients of the CAMHS Tier 4 unit and PICU at The Priory Hospital Ticehurst.  We have a team of specialist Teachers and Teaching Assistants who deliver education to all young people at the hospital, where the school is based.

It is our intention that every student develops their courage, determination and skills as a learner, so they can re-engage confidently with their education on discharge. We liaise with mainstream schools and colleges and each young person has an individualised curriculum plan in each subject area, with progress being closely monitored.  Our school offers a broad based academic and enrichment curriculum with specialist teaching spaces, teaching technologies and substantial grounds around our buildings.
