Administrative/Biographical history:

Guy's Hospital School was established in 1949 to enable children in the hospital to continue their education, maintain their interest and encourage their recovery. After 1965 it was staffed by the Inner London Education Authority.

In 1976 the Evelina Hospital was physically amalgamated with Guy's Hospital becoming the Evelina's Children's Department in Guy's Tower. The Evelina also had regular school instruction in the wards by arrangement with London County Council.
