The Medical Centre

The Medical Centre is at the heart of the school and is staffed by three experienced Registered General Nurses.

  • Sister Theresa Mortimer
  • Sister Julie Kemp
  • Sister Julie Amor
  • Sister Tracy Bacon

We pride ourselves on delivering high standards of care and promoting the life skills required to manage all aspects of health in the future. We empower students to manage their health needs so that they can move with confidence and knowledge towards independence in the adult world.

The welcoming environment of the purpose-built medical centre comprises a clinical room consulting room, designated counsellor room, bedrooms, and a lounge area where students can recuperate in a supported and safe environment. We provide a kind, listening, holistic service that respects the individual and ensures appropriate levels of confidentiality.

The Medical Centre is staffed by the nursing team at the following times (term-time only)

  • 7.30 am to 7.00 pm Monday – Thursday
  • 7.30 pm to 6.30 pm Friday

Nurses also provide an on-call service for boarding pupils at all other times.

Full time boarders are encouraged to register with the School Doctor from Highview Medical Centre. The GPs holds twice weekly surgeries. Advice and additional services are available outside these times.

Nurse-led clinics are available throughout the school day, promoting good physical and mental health and managing minor illness and minor injuries.

We have a resident School Counsellor with whom girls can meet in strict confidence.

The Medical Centre team is an integral part of a student’s life, whether that be supporting a chronic illness, a mental health problem or just providing the care and monitoring required if she is unwell. We encourage parents and guardians to contact the nursing team if they have any questions or concerns about their daughter’s wellbeing.
