Personal Development

The Peak School curriculum extends beyond the academic and vocational offer. We strongly value the importance of preparing pupils for life beyond school, teaching them to understand how to engage with society and providing them with a range of opportunities to do so.

The core elements of our Personal Development curriculum includes:

  • Careers Information, Education, Advice and Guidance
  • British Values
  • Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development (SMSC)
  • Healthy Lifestyles
  • Development of pupil’s talents, character and interest
  • Citizenship
  • Wider curriculum opportunities such as external visits and visitors
