The aim of the PSHCE programme is to enable students to become confident and informed citizens of the community.
All pupils have a weekly timetabled lesson delivered by a member of the PSHCE team.
Guest speakers and external agencies are invited to lead sessions in their specialist fields. Visits also take place, for example, to the Galleries of Justice and Warning Zone.
PSHCE lessons allow the girls to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to make safe and healthy choices and to respect the rights of others.
The topics covered include relationships, personal safety, drug awareness, well-woman issues, study skills, money matters, politics, crime and legal awareness. A variety of learning opportunities are employed, encouraging self-expression and allowing students to make responsible and positive decisions about issues affecting themselves and others.
