Aims and Objectives

To provide all pupils in KS3 with the skills and knowledge needed to prepare them to be responsible citizens ready to take their place in either higher education or the world of work after they leave school. Also to enable them to apply the knowledge and skills and understanding developed at school in the workplace, together with having the knowledge and confidence to make good personal health and economic decisions.
