The curriculum is enhanced by regular visits from health professionals and people with expertise in business and industry. These include regular school nurse clinics, presentations from guest speakers, curriculum theme days and drama workshops.
Our courses set out to give our students the knowledge and skills necessary for pupils to make informed choices about:;

- Their future
