PSHE / RE
All students study a range of issues across the curriculum which include topics such as animal experimentation, abortion, war and peace, prejudice, environmental issues, the origins of life, arguments for and against belief in God.
PSHE topics obviously form a key part of RE lessons, up to and including GCSE, and are also dealt with in whole school assemblies and form times. Form tutors will regularly discuss topical and controversial issues with their forms and the school encourages students as much as possible to engage with the wider world outside of Elmhurst.
