Upper 4 take on the HeartStart Initiative

Posted on February 15, 2019


As a fully-fledged British Heart Foundation HeartStart School, we take great pride in teaching our students emergency life-saving skills such as recognising a heart attack or cardiac arrest, performing CPR, helping a choking person or dealing in serious bleeding. 

Our own Mrs Thorne is a fully qualified HeartStart trainer and, as part of their tutorial programme, she has been teaching the Upper 4s vital lessons in how they can help save a life. On completion of all six sessions all of the girls will receive a certificate from the British Heart Foundation to recognise their completion of the course and they can go out in to the world, confident that they have the basic medical skills to help someone in crisis.
