Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education is taught to Years 7-11. PSHCE lessons allow the opportunity for every student to develop the essential personal, social and thinking skills needed to safely and successfully navigate today’s diverse world, and thrive as individuals.

The curriculum is tailored to the individual needs of each year group. We teach about the challenges and responsibilities that our students may face as they grow up. As a school we are committed to ensuring that our students feel empowered and are able to develop resilience and self-esteem through the content studied.

Lessons are taught by Form Tutors. Common across the curriculum is a focus on personal health, both physical and mental, financial matters, careers, citizenship and politics, our personal and social responsibilities, and our role within a local, national and global community. Relationship and Sex Education are also taught within this framework.
