Health and Wellbeing Centre

A Warm Introduction

Our Health and Wellbeing Centre is staffed by one lead nurse, two full time registered nurses, one part time registered nurse, a medical administrator and registered bank nurses (when required).

The team takes a student centric approach, supporting emotional and physical health needs; nurses work 0730 – 2030 Monday to Friday and Saturday 0800 – 1600. The centre staff have a broad skill set having previously worked in critical care, emergency care and primary care settings.

The Health and Wellbeing Centre treat illness and injuries and administers prescribed and homely remedies as required. Individuals are holistically assessed, if further advice should be sought for more serious problems, a nurse will clinically advise, ensuring parents or guardians are informed. If a pupil is too unwell to remain at school or requires hospital treatment, the nursing staff will contact parents or guardians.

Other services available include weekly counselling sessions and a doctor onsite once a week for boarding students.
