School Clinic 


To ensure the safety and wellbeing of all our pupils and staff members, we have an fully equipped medical clinic which is run by fully-qualified nursing professionals.

Parents should note that prior to your child starting at the school, you must have completed and submitted the Medical Information Form detailing any food allergies or health problems that your child(ren) may have, as well as the entire immunisation records on OpenApply. The school clinic will attend to any injuries or illnesses but sometimes we need to contact the pupil’s parent or guardian, so it is vital that we always have your current contact details.

If your child develops symptoms during school time, such as fever, vomiting, diarrhea, you will be contacted and asked to collect your child to see the doctor. If your child has sustained an accidental injury, you will be informed by the note from nurse or a phone call depending on the severity. In more serious cases of injury that require hospital treatment, we will ask you to either collect your child and take them to the hospital or, if required in an emergency, to meet one of the nurses with your child at a local hospital.

Contact information:

HSH Clinic (Mon to Fri 8:00-16:30): 0571-8239 6394
Boarding Clinic (Sun to Thu 17:00-21:30): 0571-8239 6396



Medication Policy


Any medication, including RX and OTC, given on campus should be provided with a doctor’s prescription or medical records. In order to clarify the medication requirements, Medication Form must be completed in its entirety and signed. All medication must be sent to the nurse with clear instructions and a doctor’s prescription or medical records. All medication that are passed to nurses must be in its original package. School nurses will give the medication to your child based on the information on the Medication Form and prescription.

All medication should be kept in school clinic. No pupil is allowed to carry or self-administer any medication without explicit permission from the school. Items such as asthma inhalers may be left in the care of the child or their class teacher/house tutor, to be on-hand immediately if required. It is the responsibility of parents to ensure their child and the school has the medication they need.


Medical Emergency


If your child requires urgent medical attention while under the care of the school, we will attempt to obtain your prior consent. However, should we be unable to contact you in the event of an emergency, parents have authorised (in the School Terms and Conditions) the Executive Master to consent on their behalf to the pupil receiving emergency medical treatment recommended by a doctor, including general or local anaesthetic, operation or blood transfusion (unless you have previously notified us that you object to blood transfusions).

In addition, should it be necessary for the school to arrange for your child to see a doctor, it will be the parents’ responsibility to ensure that their child(ren) has adequate insurance or pay for the medical cost.


Medical Disclosure

In order to protect the health safety of pupils during school days, nurse team will inform the relevant staff and departments of diet requirements and health problems, such as class teacher/house tutor, PE team, canteen and so on. 


Food Allergy and Nuts-free Policy


The school recognises that although most food intolerances produce symptoms that are uncomfortable, some people can suffer a severe food allergy with more serious consequences and in some instances these may even be life-threatening.


A number of pupils in the school may have severe allergies to nuts and nuts products. The school therefore strives to maintain a nuts-free environment and aims to ensure that none of the food provided, served or purchased within the school contain nuts. Please do not bring nuts or nuts products into school.

As with any large institutions, it is impossible to monitor 100% of foods on site at any time; at special events attended by pupils or with foods potentially served on school trips this becomes increasingly difficult. Therefore, discretion is advised to all pupils and families to monitor what they eat in circumstances on the occasions where the school cannot guarantee 100% food safety.
