Health and Social Care

We come into contact with people everyday, facing situations and challenges that naturally occur through social systems, physical well-being and our own development. If you have a thirst for working with others, communicating in ways that will ignite the solution to a problem or aspirations to work within the Health or Social Care system, Health and Social Care is an essential choice for you.

Stimulating activities help pupils to develop greater understanding of the systems that make our society what it is today. Project-based learning, along with work experience and challenging written assignments ensure that pupils that study with us leave as well-rounded skilled members of society.

Pupils will have the opportunity to learn about how humans develop, the impact of decision making and the support structures that allow the diverse communities and individuals within our society to interact and live successful healthy lives.

Results continue to be above National Averages and the department continues to be one of the most successful in the Academy.
