The PSHE programme is delivered during timetabled lessons. All Year 10 and 11 students receive one hour of PSHE per two week cycle.

The full range of PSHE covers everything from relationships to sex and drug education.

In June, there is a discreet two-hour timetabled lesson where students learn about breast and testicular cancer in single sex groups. During this session, students are also given age-appropriate advice about contraception.

The programme is designed to be interactive. It encourages students to make informed decisions about their lives, and to be aware of the sources of help and support that are available to them.

Under the current programme, students receive more PSHE teaching than ever before.

Students with concerns or issues about health or other personal issues are referred to the Teen Health Stop or the Year Room where expert advice is available.
