CPSHE provision in the Sixth Form underpins our Enrichment programme. This is delivered via timetabled lessons each fortnight which are in addition to academic study. Our CPSHE provision is a really important part of enrichment in the Sixth Form; research has shown that students with higher levels of emotional, social and behavioural well-being have higher levels of academic achievement and engagement, now and in the future!
We have worked hard to create sessions which are very much tailored towards the Sixth Formers as young adults, and every care has been taken to focus on future career planning too, whether that constitutes an apprenticeship, a university application or a GAP year, in order to prepare for responsibilities and experiences in later life.
We aim to create and deliver sessions that allow the students to develop habits of good living and to create an environment where they can flourish as a human being, both currently and later in life. For example, the topics in Year 13 cover (although this list is not exhaustive): the maintenance of good mental health, growth mind-set, (the idea that intelligence is not fixed; we can learn from our mistakes) the importance of sleep, identity, self- management, finance, driving, political awareness, procrastination and the importance of self-esteem.
