Study Club

Study Club takes place in the Library after school every day during term time. Students attend for different reasons. Some need help with homework; others want to work collectively with friends; some want to use the Internet or access the ICT facilities such as Desk Top Publishing or word processing. Homework helpers are always on hand to assist students after school and parental help is particularly welcome.
Please contact Mrs Jarvis, Head of Resources, if you are interested or would like further details about the Study Club.

Sex Education

A Sex Education policy has been developed in consultation with students and parents. It has been agreed by the Governors of the school and is available on request. Sex Education is included in the Personal, Social & Health Education programme. It is set within the context of wider personal relationships and family life. In the upper school students are given support to explore decision making, choice and risk and the programme includes work on HIV/AIDS/Contraception. Basic anatomy and the physiology of sexual reproduction are also parts of the Science programmes of study.

Religious Education

All students study Religious Education in accordance with the 1944 Education Act. We aim to give students an understanding of what religion is and an opportunity to examine beliefs, values and attitudes. The teaching is non-denominational and non-evangelical and seeks to provide a factual background to, and an appreciation of, Christianity and other world religions. Discussion of the relevance of religion to the world around us is encouraged and respect for other viewpoints is developed.
