A structured programme of Personal and Social Education which is followed by all pupils enables issues of school organisation, discipline and personal development to be addressed in an atmosphere where self-reflection is encouraged and opinions valued.
In Year 10 the pupils are encouraged to become increasingly aware of their own strengths and weaknesses and have opportunities to reflect on and discuss these. Each is asked to prepare a Personal Career Action Plan and assistance is given in subject options at Key Stage 4 so that this transition point in the pupil's school career can be negotiated as comfortably as possible. Additional help is offered in career options with the aid of a career library and computer data.
