Medical Centre

The medical centre is located at the heart of the Bryanston campus between the main school and the majority of the boarding houses, and can treat a complete range of illnesses. It is staffed 24-hours a day, seven-days-a-week, during term time, by a highly competent and dedicated healthcare team of six fully qualified nurses, two bank nurses, a mental health care nurse, a health care assistant, two physiotherapists and an administrator. Doctors provide daily weekday surgeries and are available on call at all times. Their responsibilities are to maintain the highest standard of individual and group health, and to treat sickness and injury.

School policy is for all new boarding pupils to have a medical with the school doctor in their first term in order to check and monitor their physical health and well being while at school.

Caring for sick pupils 

The medical centre houses 13 beds that are covered 24-hours a day. This allows sick children to be accommodated in comfortable surroundings by professional staff away from their boarding houses for short periods of time.


Our on-site, full-time physiotherapy service has a specialist interest in sports injuries and musculoskeletal conditions. Based in the medical centre Monday to Friday, our physiotherapists liaise closely with our doctors and nurses to ensure continuity of care. They work closely with the sports teams to provide pitch-side emergency first aid cover.

Physiotherapy Services Include:
  • injury assessment and management
  • biomechanical injuries
  • management of key conditions, low back pain, shoulder pain, anterior knee pain, ligament sprains, etc
  • post-operative orthopaedic management.

Personal medication 

If your child is under sixteen years of age, it is school policy for all medication to be kept in the medical centre and dispensed as required or with the boarding house matron if appropriate and agreeable. Antibiotics and other medication required to be taken regularly, will be given at the nurse's discretion, usually a day's supply at a time for the D year group and two days' supply for the C year group. Analgesics such as paracetamol and Nurofen are available from the medical centre at surgery times unless in an emergency and paracetamol can also be obtained from the house matron and/or housemaster/mistress.
