Learning for Life

Also known as PSHE, (Personal, Social, Health Education), Learning for Life is a programme of learning that provides a framework for the individual development of every child at Dorset House.  It incorporates several key areas and aims to bring a breadth of experience that is inclusive, progressive and age appropriate.

Subjects are covered during Form Time or PSHE lesons with Form Teachers, via assemblies which are taken by staff or occasionally, outside speakers, as part of the Post CE programme for Year 8 pupils and also via our Leadership programme.  Topics include: Form issues, health and wellbeing, British values, social skills, problem solving, public speaking, study skills and for older children, career guidance and economic understanding.
