The school’s Integrated Curriculum provides the opportunity for students in Years 7 to 13 to become personally and socially effective by providing learning experiences in which they can develop and apply skills, explore personal attitudes and values, and acquire appropriate knowledge and understanding.
Students will also make active links within the school, local and national communities, exploring the attributes and qualities that enable them to become effective citizens in society. The range of topics explored includes:
- Sexuality and relationships
- Physical and mental health
- Citizenship and politics
- Sustainability and the environment
- Financial Literacy
- Equality, diversity and human rights
Careers and Work-related Experiences
The school provides a number of opportunities for students to develop skills, attributes and experiences to help better prepare them for the world of work. In Year 10, students will have opportunity to organise and participate in a one-week work experience placement of their own choosing. Work experience is also provided for students that study vocational courses in Key Stages 4 and 5. There are also work-based learning opportunities for students that may study a more bespoke curriculum.
Each year the school also hosts its own Careers and Higher Education Fair which features over one hundred professionals and higher education establishments designed to help students and parents/guardians find information to make the right career and higher education choices.
In addition to the above the school also has a designated on-site support from Careers Wales representatives who can offer bespoke, impartial advice and guidance for students throughout the school.
