Skills for Life - S4L

As a school we aspire to educate, in partnership with parents, inquiring, well informed and compassionate students who will go on to make a better world by occupying positions of responsibility and influence.

As well as our extensive academic curriculum, we also provide a balanced and broad based learning programme which promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of students, and prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

We deliver this curriculum through our ‘Skills 4 Life’ and ‘Character’ programmes, which from Y7 to Y13 covers Relationship and Sex Education, Health and Wellbeing education, cultural capital, British values and citizenship, to develop in all students the skills and character traits to enable them to succeed in the world of work.

Our programme is state of the art, having gained us an ‘Early Adopter’ status, such that we inform latest best practise advised from the Department of Education for all schools in the UK.
