Welcome to Personal Development here at St Cuthbert's. Within these pages you will find a range of information providing a useful resource for both students of St Cuthbert's and their parents.
'The only person you are destined to be is the person you decide to be.' Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Pupils learn about healthy relationships and the dangers of risky behaviours in the school's personal development lessons, the 'PD Bitesize' programme' and dedicated whole-school days." Ofsted, July 2022
Our intent is that the students of St Cuthbert’s build on and improve their knowledge of the world God created; that they develop their talents and interests, and make the most of their opportunities and experiences to live their lives in the way that Jesus taught us.
We aim for excellence in all areas of personal development and character education so that our students may leave us as confident, resilient citizens who contribute positively to society and who challenge injustice and prejudice in relation to race, sexual orientation, disability and all other aspects of the Equality Act 2010.
We aim to equip our students with the knowledge, social ability and skill set so that they aspire to be the best they can be in all aspects of their lives as they embark on their future as young adults.
