The students at Chelsea Children's Hospital School (CCHS) are sometimes forced to stay away from home for months on end.

Without the support of the school, those with long-term illnesses would miss out on an education.

These animations were made by the students on computers donated by the Worshipful Company of IT workers.

There are five schools under the CCHS umbrella -

The Royal Brompton Hospital looks after children and young adults with lung and heart problems; the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital specialises in neurological complaints and burns; the Cheyne Centre takes in children with cerebral palsy; St Mary's caters for children with bone marrow disorders and those who have to be isolated; and Collingham Gardens Child and Family Mental Health Unit.

The school ensures that children keep up with the National Curriculum and part of that means polishing their IT skills.

Head teacher Janette Steel says: "We believe in helping people to know about ICT. It helps them to know more about their illness and they can research all aspects of their condition. That way they don't become the poor child who's sick but the child with confidence."
