The Medical Centre is an important part of the comprehensive approach to pastoral care for all pupils and staff at King Edward’s.

The Medical Centre is located in a peaceful corner of the School grounds. It is staffed by qualified nurses twenty-four hours, seven days a week who are available around the clock for emergency call-outs.  The staff work closely with Matrons and parents, ensuring pupils take any prescribed medicines, and are a first point of contact if a pupil is unwell. The Medical Centre staff provide:

  • Day to day medical needs
  • GP doctor appointments
  • Appointments for external specialists as needed
  • All inoculations are kept up to date
  • Specialised clinics for asthma, vaccinations, weight management
  • Advice on routine and travel vaccinations
  • Specialist counselling help


The Medical Centre is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
