Foremarke has a professionally staffed and equipped medical centre. The staff provide individualised, holistic care for pupils, promoting good health and healthy lifestyles and emergency care for injured or acutely ill pupils.  Emergency treatment can also be provided for staff and visitors.

Our fully-equipped Medical Centre, including a defibrillator, is located in its own building on the school campus. We have provision for separate gender sleeping arrangements, a large living and dining room, as well as a separate office and treatment room.

Pupils with a variety of chronic conditions are cared for in every aspect in close conjunction with parents and teachers and the school Doctor. Borders, in particular, build good relationships with the Medical Centre staff, and close communication with the boarding parents and their team ensure a seamless approach to each child’s health and well-being.

Those children who register with the School doctor also have access to a weekly surgery, held by the GP, at school. Any additional appointments, including hospital, opticians and dental visits are accessed via the medical centre.

All known medical requirements are shared with boarding staff and teaching staff to ensure a safe environment for children with medical needs. Pupils medication is easily accessible in case of emergency but is stored securely within the boarding house and Medical centre. Risk assessments are carried out on pupils who wish to self-administer medication.
