Welcome to Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education

PSHCE stands for Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education. The course is followed by all students in KS3 and gives them the opportunity to engage with issues outside the usual confines of the academic curriculum. The topics covered are all very relevant to young people growing up in the 21st century and cover aspects of many of the challenges they will have to face on their journey into adulthood.

The course is wide-ranging and students are encouraged to debate the issues, looking at different sides of the same question as they develop their own views and determine how they might respond to some of the questions posed by an increasingly global society. They will also look at the way some of these issues are dealt with by the media and consider how much our behaviour is influenced by it.
