Life Skills

Life Skills is an amalgamation of Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural Education and Guidance. The Life Skills programme is taught by tutors P1 on a Friday and is supplemented by outside speakers. Through Life Skills, students have the opportunity not only to visit relevant topics for their personal development, but also to build their skills of critical thinking, communication and problem solving. The programme covers both British Values and our own Academy Values.
