Citizenship is an increasingly important aspect of the curriculum. Topics such as Human Rights, the Democratic Process and Equal Opportunities are covered as part of our Personal, Social and Health Education programme which is taught through discrete, fortnightly timetabled lessons.
A number of aspects of citizenship are taught within subject lessons. For example, the Religious Studies department, in delivering Religion and Philosophy lessons to Year 10 and 11, deals with issues such as rights, justice, punishment, and respect and understanding of identity in a multi-cultural society.
Elements of citizenship are also delivered through assemblies, the School Council, the Duke of Edinburgh's Award, Community Service, Charities, Careers Education, the Literary and Debating Society and Exchange visits.
Students "make an outstanding contribution to the local community."
