Personal, Social and Health Education is taught by Mrs K Woods (Head of Department) and Mr J Taylor.   At Key Stage 3 students receive one 50 minute lesson per week and at Key Stage 4 students have a lesson on a carousel.  We cover a number of different topics and use a variety of teaching techniques including circle time, role play and the use of videos.
