STARS is a medical pupil referral unit for children and young people with complex medical needs. The service operates over a number of sites in Sutton. We also have a schoolroom at the Royal Marsden Hospital and provide bedside teaching at Queen Mary's Hospital for Children.
The service is based at the Drapers’ Centre in Carshalton.
STARS' mission is to provide a safe, caring learning environment where young people with medical needs are able to access a high quality and meaningful education, enhance social confidence and develop the skills required to reintegrate into mainstream provision.
STARS' vision is: To work closely with our multi-agency partners, providing outstanding learning and teaching through relevant, enjoyable educational experiences for every pupil, every session, every day.
