PSHE, Citizenship & RSE in the Prep School

PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education), Citizenship and RSE (Relationships and Sex Education) are all parts of the Prep School curriculum. They are subjects that are timetabled as form periods and also delivered as part of weekly year-group and Prep assemblies. 

In this designated time, pupils are encouraged to take part in discussion and to develop their skills of communication and participation whilst also showing empathy and respect to others. Some of the topics covered include relationships (friendships and more toxic relationships), body changes, puberty, the idea of consent (in terms of physical contact), objectification and laddish culture, how the media portrays relationships, male and female role models as well as choices, diversity, rules, and rights and responsibilities.

To access detailed information about the PSHE syllabus and the schemes of work for each year group from the 8s (Year 4) up to and including our 12s (Year 8), please open and read the downloads below. 

PSHE, Citizenship and RSE aim to help our children lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to be responsible and positive members of the community. Putting this into practice involves organising activities and rewards for the children that help boost their confidence and promote active citizenship. Examples of these activities can be found on our Pastoral Care section of the website of by clicking here.
