Promoting British Values

We promote core British values through our teaching, our community links and through our ethos. These values are crucial in preparing our students for life in Modern Britain. Ways in which we promote British values include:

  • Democracy
  • A thriving Student Council
  • Local 'Democracy Days'
  • Free Speech and the rule of law
  • Debates in the classroom
  • Close links with the local police, including 'drop ins'
  • Human Rights and individual liberty
  • PSHCE curriculum
  • Tolerance and mutual respect
  • Stonewall School Champion
  • International links
  • Auschwitz Project
  • Assemblies, Reflective Moment programme
  • Sense of Community

The National Citizen Service actively recruits Sixth Formers and take assemblies

SLiCE (Student Leadership involvement and Community Engagement) recruits volunteer Sixth Formers for a variety of activities
