More than a school… an experience!

Woodridge Sanatorium

well-equipped clinic manned by two qualified nursing sisters.

This is the School sickbay, situated opposite the Preparatory School offices.

OPEN:   07h00 – 19h00,  from  Monday – Friday with a sister on call for emergencies at night and on weekends.

Clinic Times

Because young people sometimes try to avoid classes by visiting the Sanatorium, we have a strict policy regarding consulting hours. Pupils may consult the sister on duty as follows:

Monday – Friday

07h00 – 08h00: With a permission slip signed by the daily duty staff member

08h00 – 14h00: With a permission slip signed by the relevant subject teacher.

Break time: With a permission slip signed by the Period 4 subject teacher.

14h00 – 15h00: With a permission slip signed by the daily duty staff member.

15h00 – 16h30: With a permission slip signed by your sports coach and receptionist.

16h30 – 07h00: With the permission of the House Parent.


OPEN:   08h00 – 09h00  and  17h00 – 18h00



OPEN:   09h00 – 10h00  and  16h00 – 17h00


Pupils admitted to the Sanatorium are not allowed visitors (this includes chatting to friends at the windows). When pupils are in the Sanatorium for a long time, visiting is at the sister’s discretion and is limited to non-infectious patients only.


Personal Medication

When visiting the Sanatorium, the nurses must be notified of ALL medication the pupil is using, as some drugs interact negatively with each other. All medicines are to be kept by the Sanatorium, or with the House Parent if the Sanatorium staff approve.

Electronic Policy

Pupils admitted to the SAN may not have any access to mobile phones/ computers/ ipods etc. from 08h00 – 16h00.
