Pupils outside the Cathedral

Personal, Social, Health & Economic Education complements the well-rounded education that our students receive through their subject lessons and tutor periods.

PSHE is taught as a discrete subject to Year 12 students in a single (35 minutes) lesson each week. Our objective is to provide information and guidance, and promote thought about a range of topics which will help develop thoughtful, compassionate and healthy students with a strong moral compass and the social skills to succeed in the modern world.

The Year 12 programme is largely delivered by invited expert speakers and includes issues such as:


Values Organ and Blood Donations
Eating Disorders Teenage Driving
Role of Magistrates Revision Skills
Rape and Consent University Finance
Sexual Health Binge Drinking
Homelessness Mental Well-being

Careers advice and preparation for university admissions forms the major part of the summer term’s scheme of work.
