In Year 9 and upward, the PSHCE and Religious Studies lessons are combined to form the PR Curriculum.

These lessons are delivered by the PSHCE/PR team. Each student will have one 50 minute curriculum lesson per week (outlined below), delivered by the PSHCE teaching team and two 15 minute registration sessions per week, delivered by Form Tutors.

The Personal, Social, Health Citizenship and Education curriculum has three strands — health & wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world.

This is a spiralling curriculum with strands re-visited each year allowing for students to build on and extend their knowledge through the use of age appropriate materials and resources.

Specialist speakers are used to enhance the curriculum across a range of topics.
