Sex and Relationships Education is provided through Science and Personal and Social Education.  At all times, lessons dealing with sensitive issues are introduced with a strong sense of values and all resources are viewed by senior staff to ensure that they are appropriate.

Religious Education lessons are part of the core curriculum for all pupils in Key Stage 4.  The courses studied involve the ideas, beliefs and lifestyles of people committed to a faith.  They draw upon Christianity and other world religions for exemplar material.

Parents may ask for their son or daughter to be excused from Religious Education lessons and Sex and Relationships Education by contacting the Headteacher.
