Your child will have the opportunity to visit The Health Centre within their first week at College. This is a getting to know you exercise. We get to know any medical problems or concerns that pupils may have and they become familiar with the Health Centre and staff. It serves as an opportunity for us to tell them about the services we offer and how we can help.
If your child has underlying health conditions we will arrange for a new pupil medical, which may include:
A brief medical examination – We pay particular attention to factors which are important to education, which may not have been examined in the past, particularly eye sight and hearing. Height, weight and body mass index (BMI) are measured, to get a baseline and thereafter done termly in House. This allows us to monitor any emerging trends. You will be contacted by the Lead Nurse in the first instance if we have any concerns regarding either a high or low BMI.
On-Site Physiotherapy Services
Stuart and Sarah Fossella offer a comprehensive Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy service helping students to get back to sport and a pain free life as soon as is possible. They typically treat muscular and joint based injuries in pupils from The Prep through to Sixth Form students, in a well-equipped room within The Health Centre.
They have over 10 years experience as qualified Physiotherapists (Bsc Hons) and have a background in private practice. Before this they both worked overseas and for the NHS. When they are not in clinic at College, they work at their own practice in Cheltenham. For any queries please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
They work closely with the entire Health Centre team, rehab team, coaches and Matrons to keep everyone informed about injury progress and anticipated return to sport.
