Personal Development: Key Stage 4

Personal Development lessons are run on a carousel basis, integrating PSHE, CEIAG, SMSC and British Values.  The carousel is delivered by a small team of teachers in option subject time over year 10 and year 11.  Students consider the importance of democracy, the dangers of increasingly risky behaviours, and environmental issues.  The themes of health and well-being, living in the wider world and relationships are developed further and opportunities for discussion are encouraged.  

Several themed days and visiting speakers are organised throughout the year to ensure the most up to date and relevant information is given to students.
