Personal and Social Development (PSD)

Our aim is to introduce new activities and personal challenges that will encourage our young people to become:

  • Confident individuals who are physically, emotionally and socially healthy.

  • Responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society and embrace change.

  • Able to Manage risk together with their own wellbeing.


Our pupils are encouraged to develop their understanding of Personal Social Development through imaginative lessons and personal challenges. PSD is delivered through timetabled sessions covering a range of topics from Healthy Living to Community Action. Pupils will develop portfolios at PSD Entry level.


Pupils will gain further understanding of PSD by participating in a 2 year course at PSD Level 1 or 2. This nationally recognised qualification is designed to get involved in practical activities and take on more responsibility and encourage our young people to take ownership of their own learning. We aim that through motivational challenges and activities, our young people will grasp opportunities both in school, in the workplace and at home.
