All students follow a structured programme on a number of immersion days and in regular lessons throughout the year as part of its LBTS5 programme. Themes include sex education, drug education, equal opportunities, conflict management, emotional intelligence and human rights. Lessons are supported by a programme of talks, lectures and workshops from outside speakers and an annual “Health Fair”.
If you do not wish your son / daughter to take part in lessons that relate to sex education you should write to the Headteacher and apply for exemption.
