PSHE

PSHE is taught across the school by teachers from many Departments. The great experience and different strengths they bring with them make PSHE more relevant to our students’ lives. PSHE helps young people prepare themselves for the challenges of the real world.  They listen to other people, share their own thoughts and develop their own moral compass.
