About the Health and Wellbeing Centre
Welcome to the Health and Wellbeing Centre
We recognise that maintaining the health and wellbeing of our pupils is paramount in assisting them to reach their full potential.
A team of highly qualified nurses and health care assistants are available 24-hours a day, seven days a week, to provide care and support for Stonyhurst pupils, during term time.
We have facilities at both St Mary’s Hall and the College. The College Health & Wellbeing Centre also incorporates a seven bedded inpatient unit. We provide drop-in clinics offering first aid, health advice, emotional support and referral to specialist services.
Our team also includes Paramedics, a Sport Therapist and a team of Medical Escorts.

Individualised Support for Health Conditions
Whilst we recognise the majority of pupils remain fit and well, we welcome pupils with a wide range of health and medical conditions and endeavour to accommodate all pupils. Our aim is to support each pupil’s individual health needs, enabling them to have a fully inclusive and equitable school life by understanding their condition, providing support and education, to promote their independence.
Each of our nurses are linked with a year group, so to work closely with pupils, parents, boarding staff, specialist doctors and health professionals, providing coordinated healthcare and continuity, throughout a pupil’s Stonyhurst life.
We encourage all health conditions to be fully disclosed on the pupil’s health information form which is kept confidential.
The Health Team promote wider public health issues through our involvement in PSHE sessions, encouraging the development of positive lifestyle choices. These lessons aim to encourage pupil independence and responsibility, in all aspects of their health and wellbeing.
Health Centre Inpatient Admissions
Parents or UK guardians will be informed as soon as is practicably possible when a pupil is admitted as an inpatient to the Health Centre and will be kept up to date as to their condition and progress made. Parents are encouraged to contact the Health Centre staff should they require any further information.
Our on suite inpatient provision supports the segregation of different age groups and genders.
