Royal Marsden School has a reputation, nationally and internationally, for excellence in education. All teaching is underpinned by the highest academic standards and is delivered within a supportive learning environment. All of the School’s academic team have clinical roles, which enable them to maintain their credibility and/or competence within their specialist areas. The School’s teaching activity is supported by clinical specialists and research experts working in The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust. This strong relationship between the School and clinical practice ensures the curriculum reflects that changing landscape of contemporary clinical practice.
