PSHE & Careers

PSHE & Careers are a necessary part of a young person’s education. Though not examined formally, they will enable young people to identify and develop their unique skills and qualities. They will be encouraged to develop within a safe environment and discuss the many issues they will face in the future and equip them with the skills needed to make healthy choices in all aspects of their life

Religious Education
