Hospital and Home Teaching Service (HHTS)

Guidance for Schools & Colleges

The HHTS is a service that is funded by the Local Authority to provide education to children and young people who are unable to attend school due to ill-health or pregnancy.

HHTS can support statutory school aged pupils on roll to Academies, Free Schools, special schools and independent schools as well as those in maintained schools.

The support available is dependent upon the needs of the child and can vary from hospital ward taught sessions to home tuition.
