Life Skills

The aim of our Life Skills curriculum is to create confident individuals who are able to live healthy, safe and fulfilling lives. Our students will become responsible citizens who pride themselves on making a positive contribution to society. 

Our curriculum is influenced by the ethos, learning and relationships throughout the academy. Our spiral curriculum gives us the ability to be flexible, at times bespoke and to be innovative and current in the topics we teach. We can be reactive to events within school and society.

We strive to create a safe environment where students have the opportunity to explore, take risks and discuss and debate contentious issues from a personal perspective. This allows students to experience success in that others respect their opinions and they feel able to challenge views in a positive way which further helps to build their confidence.
