Learning for Life

Living in a multi-cultural society, we pride ourselves on the fact that we educate students on how to recognise the benefits and challenges of living in a world with multiple cultures and ideologies. This awareness helps them to understand the importance of democracy, rights and freedoms and that in order to live and co-exist peacefully everyone needs to respect, trust and balance the various opinions , values, lifestyle, cultures and practices that exist today. 

Our Learning for Life curriculum equips our students with the knowledge, understanding and skills that enable all students to make positive contributions to society, make decisions that are informed and keep themselves safe from harm.  

The curriculum explores what it means to be an active, honourable citizen and challenges students to look at themselves and understand fully their potential as learners and as humans. The content follows statutory guidance, as well as bespoke content that responds to contextual safeguarding needs. It focusses on personal health and well-being, relationships and sex education, democracy and the rule of law, and explores the skills needed to be successful in the wider world. It provides opportunities that allow all students to see beyond their immediate surroundings and experience, to inspire them to shape their future in a way that excites and fulfils them. 

The Learning for Life curriculum is delivered by a small team of teachers, with specialist input for certain themes. Weekly lessons at KS3 and 4 follow a scheme of work in each year group which is complimented by assemblies and additional content shared through other subjects and registration. At KS4, students gain certificates recognising their skills and knowledge through the AQA Unit Award Scheme.
