In years 7 & 8, all pupils complete one lesson of personal development each week covering different aspects of PHSE (Personal, Social & Health Education). Topics covered include healthy active lifestyle, alcohol, puberty and personal hygiene. Although they are no exams within the subject, pupils are assessed twice each term, with extended writing tasks used to assess their progress. Within the final half term of the academic year, pupils will also have the opportunity to achieve a bronze, silver and gold certificate for sports leadership. This is an accredited United Learning qualification.
