Apart from acquiring the subject knowledge based on the national curriculum, our pupils are encouraged to improve their ability to understand ideas and to form and articulate their personal opinions and views.
Both, oral and written communication skills are taught through discussions and written tasks. Frequent debates also offer an excellent opportunity to improve their team work skills. The subjects are taught with strong emphasis on current affairs which brings relevance to the topics studied in class. The subjects are delivered with strong cross-curricula links, drawing from a number of other subjects such as History, Geography, Science, Art and Literature.
This lesson forms part of our Form Time SMSC programme, alongside Citizenship, PSHE and SRE.
