• To promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
  • To prepare all pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life.
  • To provide a foundation for acquiring the skills needed to learn and grow up at ease with oneself.
  • To help prepare pupils to become informed, active, responsible citizens.


Our exciting new Pathways programme is aimed at pupils in the Upper School. Pupils will be encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences both inside and outside the classroom, contributing fully to both the school community and beyond. They will learn how they are developing personally and socially and become increasingly responsible for their own learning.

The Pathways programme is a dynamic, diverse programme that will engage pupils, incorporating key life skills, careers education, citizenship, enterprise, financial capability, first aid and self-defence, outdoor learning and health and well-being. There will be opportunities to develop leadership skills through the Duke of Edinburgh Award programme and to work in the community.

We will encourage pupils to go beyond acquiring particular knowledge or skills, so that they develop the moral, ethical and spiritual values that underlie their lives. The programme will be supported by a large team of staff and a range of specialist visiting speakers. In short, the Pathways programme is designed to promote personal qualities, skills, knowledge, understanding, attitudes and values which will enable pupils to think and act for themselves, cope with changes and adversity and move successfully into adult life.

“The quality of the pupils’ personal development is excellent.”
