Assistant Headteacher

Teacher of Computer Science and PSHCE Lead

PSHCE education helps our pupils to stay safe, healthy and prepare for life’s opportunities. Our PSHCE curriculum helps enrich our pupils with lifelong aspirations, goals and values. The activities undertaken in PSHCE aim to develop self-esteem, resilience and communication skills by helping our pupils express and debate their ideas.

PSHCE is currently delivered through one 50 minute session every Monday from 3.00pm – 3.50pm to the full school. Topics are delivered by 32 teaching staff on a rotational basis throughout the year. Year 7 and 8 classes rotate topics every 4 weeks, Year 9 and 10 classes rotate topics every 5 weeks. Year 11 classes predominantly stay with the same teacher throughout the course of Year 11 as their programme also includes a carousel of post 16 educational and training providers coming in to school to deliver post 16 information. There are a range of guest speakers who will deliver sessions through these lessons and during assemblies throughout the year.
