As a boarding school, we have the benefit of a dedicated Medical Centre, available to all pupils and staffed by qualified nurses who between them provide extensive cover. When pupils are ill they report to the nursing sister on duty and can be looked after in the Medical Centre which has separate rest rooms for boys and girls.
The nurses work hard to ensure that the Medical Centre is a friendly place. Pupils are welcome to visit the nurses during their breaks and after school even if it’s just for an informal chat. This can be very helpful if pupils have emotional or physical issues they want to discuss, and for our boarders who may occasionally get homesick.
Our nurses support and communicate with all Form Tutors to ensure that our pupils, whether day or boarding, receive excellent pastoral care.
All parents are welcome to contact the nurses if they have any concerns regarding their child’s health and well-being.
The final week of term will be a celebration of well-being through a host of character development activities. The week begins with the senior school sports day on Tuesday, 9 July.
On Wednesday, 10 and Thursday, 11 July, students will take part in a variety of house competitions and activities that will give them an opportunity to enhance a variety of skills such as leadership, teamwork, problem solving, creativeness and resilience through enterprise, drama and STEM activities to name but a few. During these days, students will also be off site taking part in a number of different activities that encompass our school values such as supporting community projects in the surrounding area and taking to the outdoors for some outdoor and adventurous activities. The school year is brought to a close on Friday, 12 July, with our final house competition. Students will need to use all their skills they have been developing throughout the year and during the week for this end of year extravaganza. We can’t tell you too much about the day as it will spoil the surprise!
