Personal Development Events

Personal Development events are a strand of Personal Development and are run by external providers, who are experts in their fields and are best placed to ensure the lessons are relevant and engaging for our pupils and supported by RGS staff.

The Personal Development programme has been developed to reflect the needs of our pupils inline with the PSHE curriculum. The programme focusses upon the statutory content outlined in the national curriculum, the school curriculum and the statutory guidance on aspects within the modules of Living in the wider world, Health and Wellbeing and building and sustaining healthy relationships. 

Within this programme, students are also encouraged and challenged to accept and be engaged with the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of differences such as those with different faiths, beliefs and sexuality.

Please find below the dates of the 2023-24 Personal Development events:

  • Year 7 event 1- Monday 5th February

To ensure that the learning for Year 11 is not interrupted in the lead up to their exams, students participate in practice interviews, conducted by external visitors, during their PSHE lessons. Each student receives guidance on the preparation for the interviews and individualised feedback on them.
