PSHCE is taught by all staff on five drop down days throughout the year. The whole school comes off timetable and the day is split into four sessions. Students work in groups of no more than 20 and experience topics relevant to their age group and development. We also have a number of outside agencies taking part e.g. Fire Service, West Yorkshire Police, Leeds Faith in Schools. Below we have outlined the themes for each year group for the five days.
