The Medical Centre

A nurse readies a room for patients

We are lucky to have a superb Medical Centre on the school campus which is manned 24 hours a day by registered nurses.

Our Junior Boarders at The Manor also have a registered nurse on from 07.00 to 08.15 every morning and again in the evening between 19.00 and 21.00.

The Medical Centre consists of four Inpatient rooms which are all en-suite with TVs and DVDs, a waiting room, sisters' office, doctor/physiotherapy consulting room, treatment room (with double door ambulance access), cosy sitting room, large kitchen and counselling room.

All our pupils both day and boarding are provided with medical care, including administration of first aid, emergency care and supervision and administration of prescription medicines and over the counter medications which are dispensed in accordance with the school doctor's advice. Parents are asked to sign that they agree to this practice on entry of a child to the school.

Communication between the Medical Centre, academic staff, House staff and parents is vitally important to ensure the wellbeing of the pupils. Pupils are always encouraged to keep parents/guardians informed of medical issues. All medical information is held in confidence by the Nursing Staff in the Medical Centre and only shared if necessary to ensure the safety of a pupil.
