Bolton School Senior Girls

Health Care

We are very fortunate to have a fully qualified School Nurse who deals with any medical matters which occur during the school day from 8.30am-4.30pm.   

She also maintains pupils' medical records and is in regular consultation with Heads of School to discuss current problems. Regular health assessments are a major part of her work and these include: measurement of height, weight, blood pressure and a sight test. During the day the Nurse also looks after any medication that your daughter may need to take, apart from asthma inhalers.

Our very successful PSHE programme highlights issues relating to health at regular intervals following consultation with the School Nurse. In recent years the programme has included sessions on drugs awareness, smoking, alcohol, healthy eating and, for the Sixth Form, women's health issues. These sessions are often delivered by outside speakers who are experts in their particular field.


Bolton School Girls’ Division links up with Relate’s counselling service for Young People


Bolton School is very pleased to inform you of a new service for our pupils to ensure they have easy access to counselling and therefore professional emotional support. Helen Porter, a Relate Counsellor for Young People and Families is available to meet with students each Thursday. Appointments can be arranged by emailing Helen Porter at or by requesting an appointment using the "Counsellor’s" box near the medical room.
