Illness and medical treatment

If a student feels ill, they must tell their group leader or a member of staff immediately. Many of the staff are trained first-aiders.

If a student has a cold or minor illness, we will arrange for the student to go to the pharmacy for advice and medicine. For more serious illnesses or where advised by the pharmacy, we will arrange for the student to visit the doctor. If a student has an accident or is seriously ill, we will arrange for them to go to hospital.

IMPORTANT — if a student has a medical condition such as asthma or an allergy, please inform the school in writing at the time of booking. The student should also bring a note with details of their illness with them. Please note that we do not have facilities for children with disabilities.

IMPORTANT — if a student requires a particular medicine, please ensure that the student brings the medicine with them to school. Please notify the school in writing in advance and please ensure that the student brings a note (in English) to school with details of their medication and that the student informs the school staff.

IMPORTANT — all students should ensure that they have adequate medical/ travel insurance. This can be booked through Kings if you wish.


There may be regular fire evacuation practices.

Child safeguarding

All our staff are appropriately trained in child safeguarding and all are background checked.

Visiting students

If a parent or family member wishes to visit a student on campus, or temporarily remove a student from the programme, they must inform the school at least 24 hours in advance and complete documentation required.

We are unable to release students to anybody, including family members, without previous communication.
