Personal Development is the umbrella term for the teaching of PSHE, Citizenship and Careers Education. Personal Development is unlike any other curriculum area as the subject is the students themselves. Each year we re-visit substance abuse, SRE and careers in an age appropriate and relevant way. We also have the flexibility to respond to current issues affecting a young person’s health and wellbeing.
The curriculum for each year group is delivered through Personal Development specialist teaching staff, which gives students the best possible experience within the classroom.
A wealth of outside speakers and professionals from a variety of partner agencies make a valuable input into various aspects of the curriculum, and this is something our students really benefit from.
