SMSC

Our "outstanding" Social Moral Spiritual Cultural curriculum is designed to promote core British Values of:
  • democracy;
  • the rule of law;
  • individual liberty;
  • mutual respect;
  • tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

Our "Thought for the Week" programme is designed to support stduents to reflect on wider issues and help them to engage in topical debate.

During our last Ofsted Inspection in April 2015 the Inspection Team commented:

"Students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is outstanding. The opportunities provided are rich and varied and contribute strongly to the promotion of equal opportunity. Students benefit from working together and enjoying experiences outside the classroom through the excellent range of extra-curricular activities. These experiences ensure that they are tolerant of difference and disapproving of discrimination."
