Throughout Key Stage 3 and in the first year of Key Stage 4, students follow a citizenship programme to develop their personal understanding of the world and their future.

This subject draws upon philosophical debate and study, religious viewpoints, the new British Values themes as well as key topics relating to personal development and students’ ability to move on into adult life, such as career choices, sex and morality, finance and politics.

Careers education is also an important element: students meet people representing a wide range of occupations and professional services. Further and higher education options are also explored so that students are aware of all the possibilities available to them.
