Personal Development

The intent of our Personal Development curriculum is to nurture happy, healthy young people who have the knowledge, academic achievement, and strength of character to thrive and flourish within an ever-changing society. PD aims to prepare you for your next steps in education or employment with a lifelong thirst for learning.


We ensure that every member of our school community knows that we are committed to supporting their physical health, safety, and emotional wellbeing throughout their journey with us. Personal Development encompasses the Academy’s core values and British values woven throughout each unit. Our Academy values are developed from our belief that every student should be provided with the knowledge and skills to become the best version of themselves. Our values integrated within our Personal Development curriculum are centred around respect and integrity for oneself and others.


Our Personal Development curriculum is sequenced to include the following four categories; Relationship and Sex Education, health and well-being, citizenship and careers. Our lessons provide options for support, including talking to a Trusted Adult, seeking advice from a doctor, and a reminder that our school nurse is in every Monday.


More information about the Personal Development Curriculum can be found in the Curriculum section of the website.
