Ethics

Vision

Ethics helps pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. These skills and attributes help pupils to stay healthy, safe and prepare them for life and work in modern Britain.

 

PSHE is taught in schools to teach children on the qualities and troubles they may face in their lives and advice on how to deal with these appropriately and effectively whilst remaining safe and secure.
By knowing this, it prepares them physically, emotionally, socially, mentally and intellectually for the future.

Key Stage 5 (12-13)

Sociology

We encourage students to go beyond their immediate experience and use evidence from research and theory to help explain the individual and society.  Sociology creates critical thinkers. The ability to analyse and evaluate our own views and those of others in the light of evidence is an essential skill; we give students the confidence and the skills to be able to do this.
