Matrons: Mrs Nicola Walker (pictured); Mrs Frances Clark
A qualified School Matron is available full-time during school hours in case of illness or accident. Students who become unwell in school can go to Matron. She decides on an appropriate course of action. If necessary, she will contact parents to make arrangements for the student to be collected and taken home. Any queries that concern a girl's general health can be made to Matron and she will endeavour to help at all times.
Arrangements for Medicines in School
Pills and Tablets: No student may carry pills or tablets etc around the school. If she needs to take medicine in school she should give this to Matron, with a signed medicine consent form (download form below), and go to Matron for the prescribed dose.
Asthmatics: Asthmatics are an exception to this rule and students should carry their inhalers with them at all times and keep a spare up-to-date one in the infirmary at all times.
Anaphylaxsis: Pupils prone to anaphylaxsis must keep one EpiPen with them and one in the infirmary together with a signed EpiPen consent form (download form below).
Diabetes: Diabetic girls should keep their own dextrose tablets with them and also keep a supply of dextrose or glucogel with Matron in the Infirmary.
Matron runs a second-hand uniform shop which girls may visit before school and during their morning or lunch break. Second-hand uniform in the current style, clean and in good condition is accepted for sale including blazers, outdoor coats, school skirts, games skirts, school jumpers, sweatshirts, shorts and joggers. Uniform is accepted on a sale or return basis and held for one year only. A commission of 20% on the sale price is retained by the school. All uniform must be paid for on the day of purchase.
Cheques should be made payable to The Farnborough Hill Trust. Cash is also accepted.
