At Waseley Hills High School learning extends beyond the classroom. We aim to help students to become happy, healthy, confident pupils who will be able to stay safe in a rapidly changing society therefore being able to meet their true potential. Personal Development educates our students around real-life issues affecting our children, families and communities. It’s concerned with the social, health and economic realities of their lives, experiences and attitudes including relationships. It supports students to be healthy (mentally and physically), safe (online and offline) and equipped to thrive in their relationships and careers.
We provide a curriculum that encourages pupils to explore and develop their own values and beliefs, spiritual awareness, attitudes towards others and appreciation of the diversity and richness of their own and other cultures. Students are encouraged to participate in a range of exciting opportunities that build on current skills and provides invaluable experiences throughout their educational journey. Opportunities for students at Waseley includes a range of activities such as Sports clubs, Academic Support, Musical and Artistic Expression Club, Debate Club all of which seek to further enrich their experience at Waseley Hills High School and Sixth form.
