Citizenship / PSHE - Lesson 42
Here at the College, PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic) education is delivered through a programme called 'Lesson 42'. The number 42 is significant in Douglas Adams' 'The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy'; it is the answer determined by the supercomputer, Deep Thought, to the 'Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and Everything.'
We feel this is fitting, as PSHE is a broad subject which covers many areas that will prepare our students to understand the world around them. Lesson 42 is delivered, primarily, by our form tutors but we also work hard to ensure that assemblies, outside speakers and production companies, as well as frequent drop-down days, provide a wealth of further experiences for our students. Across all Key Stages, PSHE education can be split into three key strands: 'Health and Wellbeing', 'Relationships' and 'Living in the Wider World.'
