Our PSHE curriculum is based on the PSHE associations programme of study and is split into three key areas. Relationships, health and wellbeing and living in the wider world. Our careers strategy is interweaved with our PSHE curriculum.

The aim is for students to have the knowledge, understanding, skills, strategies and attributes they need for independent living and the next stage in their education or career. Furthermore, we have flexibility in the curriculum to adapt to changes in society and meet the arising needs on our sixth formers.
