Medical Certification

In accordance with local law regulations, all students are required to present a valid Certificado del Niño/a (ages 4 to 11) or Certificado del/de la Adolescente (ages 12 to 19) prior to admission into School – and renewed annually thereafter.

This certificate is issued by the individual student’s Paediatrician or GP and must include all vaccinations required by local health and educational authorities. This certificate (if complete) allows the student to participate in P.E. activities and weekend sports.


Senior School students who participate in competitive sports organised by local sporting bodies may need to obtain their Certificado de Aptitud Deportiva at the Centro Médico Deportivo del Ministerio de Deporte. The certificate must be presented annually (in March). 

Physical Education activities are compulsory, and exemption is only granted where a valid medical certificate stating that the student is unfit to participate in such activities is presented. Liceo students need to check the details with the School Secretaries.

Students who have suffered a contagious illness may not return to School without a medical certificate of complete recovery. In addition, students who have suffered medical conditions that have limited their participation in P.E. lessons or sporting activities for over three consecutive weeks must present a medical certificate confirming that they are allowed to return to these activities.
