Hospital Heroes is an after-school club for year 7 to 9 pupils from non-selective schools in Lambeth and Southwark.
The programme is designed to have sustained and meaningful interactions with the same students over 3 years, from year 7 to 9. Each year the after-school club will run during 1 half term with 5 in school sessions and 1 trip to KCL Guy’s Campus in the 6th week.
Hospital Heroes aims to increase students’ awareness and knowledge of the range of healthcare careers available to them as well as the qualifications and skills needed to pursue a role in the sector. Featuring five in-school sessions and one visit to King’s, the pupils follow a patient on their journey to recovery meeting doctors, radiologists, surgeons and physiotherapists. They also complete projects such as designing their own healthcare centre and planning departments, staff, equipment and budgets.
If you are a teacher/careers advisor in a non-selective state school in Southwark or Lambeth, please register your interest with Kate Morgan via email at email@example.com.
Medical Activity Days
Students in Year 10 and 11 visit Guy’s Campus for two days of interactive workshops, a campus tour and clinical skills.
For the first part of each day, we focus on key stage 4 chemistry and biology, in relation to healthcare and medicine.
Later in the day, students take part in a clinical skills session where they rotate around a number of stations learning and testing out different clinical skills including CPR and taking blood.
Priority booking is given to our target schools, as determined by levels of deprivation, attainment and progression to Higher Education.
