Character Education

WHAT IS Character Time?

You may know Character Time as PSHE... Each week students have sessions in personal, social, health education. Sessions are delivered as part of a timetable of structured activities during the half-an-hour Challenge Time every morning.

Character Time is vital for our students’ happiness, success and progress. It enables our young people to understand themselves and the changes they are / will be facing in the near future.

Topics include sex and relationships, drugs and alcohol awareness, financial capability, entrepreneurial skills and citizenship, as well as life skills and personal qualities.

Careers guidance is also delivered within the programme, enabling students to make informed decisions about their futures. They are encouraged to actively engage with the school's careers education programme, thinking about which subject options are best for them, where to do work experience and the best post-16 choices.
