The PSHE curriculum at Colston’s Girls’ School is underpinned by a focus on the development key skills, attitudes and attributes, which our students can apply to their everyday lives.

Through the PSHE curriculum, we teach our students about personal identity, diversity and equality, rights and responsibilities, change and resilience, relationships, personal safety, health and wellbeing (physical, mental and social) and employability

We use PSHE to promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of our students to prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

Each term has a different PSHE focus:

Autumn term:  Living in the Wider World

Spring  term:  Relationships

Summer term:  Health & Wellbeing

Y7 and Y8

Students in Y7 and Y8 have one hour of PSHE Education once a fortnight in addition to the tutor time programme.


Students in Y9-Y11 have three dedicated PSHE Drop Down Days throughout the year, in addition to the tutor time programme.  Drop Down Days focus on key themes which include Healthy Relationships, Community Cohesion, Mental Health & Wellbeing and Financial Capability.
