Medical Matters

Matron looks after the health and well-being of pupils in each house but there is also a large, fully equipped Heath Centre with qualified nurses, a physiotherapist and counsellor available.

Full boarders are registered with the School Doctor who holds regular surgeries and there is access to both male and female doctors. Weekly boarders, 3 night boarders and day pupils should remain registered with their own family GPs but in the case of illness, they will be cared for in our Health Centre until collected by their parents.

Dental Treatment

The school is unusual in having its own dental surgery and a high standard of dental care is provided by Mr David Buchanan, BDS, LCS, RCS, Eng 1985. GDC Number 59942, and Miss Karen Vale RDN AInstLM GDC Number 123587.

Great emphasis is placed upon preventative dentistry and dental inspections are provided to ensure early diagnosis of problems. The practice can register pupils under their dental insurance scheme Denplan or under a private contract.

The practice can also offer orthodontic treatment under a private contract. The surgery also offers the opportunity to purchase custom-made gum shields.

For more information about registering with the practice and Denplan, please contact the Dental Surgery on 01473 326231 or email
