PSHCE consists of five components: personal , social, health, citizenship, and economic education (see page links in left hand menu).
The school values are embedded throughout the curriculum, with explicit teaching of the values in the Junior School. As well as being informative, the PSHCE course has been designed to be skills-focussed. Key skills of critical thinking, decision making and communication are developed throughout the course.
All boys receive a weekly PSHCE lesson with their form tutors during morning tutor time, and PSHCE is a timetabled subject for Year 7 through to Year 10. In addition to this, workshops with specialist speakers are organised for all year groups at different times throughout the year. These focus on specific age-appropriate issues such as anxiety, e-safety, drugs and alcohol, safe driving, and sexual relationships. Workshops are also delivered to parents. PSHCE is an integral part of school life, rooted in the school ethos. When pupils leave HABS we expect that they will be equipped with the knowledge, skills and attributes to become morally responsible and valued citizens.
