Sixth form students have PSHCE one lesson per fortnight delivered by their form tutor with additional content covered in tutor time and assemblies. To accompany PSHCE sessions students also take part in weekly wellbeing sessions and careers guidance in form time. On occasion a lesson may change in response to contextual needs of the cohort.

PSHCE at Sixth Form aims to support our students’ personal development by: 

  • Raising awareness
  • Promoting discussion
  • Signposting advice & Guidance

Lessons build upon topics students would have studies at Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4.
