We want all our pupils to flourish, so the help and support we give is available 24/7, and is tailored to individual needs - this is what we refer to as 'pastoral care'. It is central to all that we do.
The Medical Centre is open and staffed by the School Nurse throughout the day. Outside that time, students are able see the Boarding staff on duty. Boarders are registered as patients with the School’s recommended doctor unless parents specify otherwise.
MCS has access to medical support 24 hours a day with the Leysin Medical Centre less than 10 minutes from the School and the nearest hospital near the town of Aigle, being only a 40- minute drive.
Pupils will always be accompanied by the School Nurse or a member of MCS staff as appropriate, should a special appointment be required. The School Medical Centre takes responsibility for all prescribed medicines for boarders, keeps detailed records, and provides care plans for those with specific medical conditions such as diabetes. Parents are informed whenever a child is too unwell to attend school.
