Our Health Centre enjoys well equipped, purpose-built facilities and is open during the school day. Emergency cover is readily available around the clock and we enjoy a formal relationship with Chipping Norton Health Centre.
We have a great team of two experienced nursing sisters; Elaine Barton and Mary Garner.
Elaine originally trained in Northampton and qualified in 1988. She has experience in accident and emergency care, practice nursing and in the private sector in endoscopy nursing and most recently carrying out immunisations in local schools. She also has experience in fostering children with both emotional and physical problems. She has attended numerous courses, including those in diabetes, spirometry and asthma.
Mary is an experienced school nursing sister, having previously worked at Marlborough College and Bloxham School. Her nursing career has also included senior staff nurse positions in operating theatres in Oxfordshire hospitals. Mary has a wealth of experience in dealing with all the issues that can arise at an independent boarding school. Following an initial stint as the Relief Nursing Sister in June 2013, she joined the team more permanently in January 2015.
We are delighted that the running of the Health Centre is in such experienced and capable hands. Elaine and Mary are always ready to handle pupil enquiries and concerns
