The CPSHE course aims to develop positive, proactive citizens, providing learners with the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary to make informed choices about their lives and to maximise their personal safety both in the real and virtual world.
British values underpin the delivery of the curriculum. Learners also investigate issues surrounding identity, mental wellbeing, parenthood and personal finance. Leaners use multimedia to investigate homophobic bullying, options for year 12 and to develop emotional literacy. Citizenship issues such as government, the European Union, United Nations, and the law are also explored. Such learning takes place in mixed-ability classes, where every student is supported to develop these thinking skills. CPSHE is assessed internally.
