The school’s Medical Centre is open 24 hours a day during term time for routine and emergency treatment for all pupils. Fully qualified nursing staff are on duty at all times and pupils have access to a qualified Counsellor.
The Medical Centre provides nursing facilities for children who are ill and under the care of the School Doctor. The School Doctor calls twice a week – more often if necessary.
Hospital treatment and visits to Consultants are arranged through the School Doctor and pupils are accompanied by a known adult.
If a pupil is hospitalised, or detained in the Medical Centre for any length of time, parents and guardians are notified. Frequent visits are made by the Housemaster or Housemistress and other members of staff (and friends, if appropriate).
