Good Progress for All

Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education

Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHEE) is taught to every year group during tutor time and through enrichment days.

Through PSHEE lessons, the college has developed a coherent strategy of Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural Education which is demonstrated through a wide range of opportunities. Students are able to make reasoned and responsible responses to moral dilemmas and they have a strong sense of the values common to different groups, while respecting the needs and interests of others.

The students will gain knowledge of the variety of career opportunities available to them. They will make informed decisions about which learning pathways to follow and they will explore the qualities, attributes and skills needed for employability.

The personal well-being curriculum focuses on personal identities and healthy lifestyles. The students will study the benefits and the risks of health and lifestyle choices as well as where and how to obtain information on health.
