Life Skills in the Sixth Form
Life skills has a dedicated time allocated each week and is a fundamental part of preparing the girls for life beyond RMS. The curriculum is based around six main themes;
- Health and wellbeing
- Sex and relationships
- Living in the wider world (social, economic and political awareness)
- Personal skills development (confidence, accepting responsibility..)
- Respect for other cultures and faiths
As part of this we invite in many external speakers who give students a wider perspective to certain issues. Form tutors also run a carrousel of talks about life beyond RMS, including cooking for university, personal finance and car maintenance. In 2016/17 the students will benefit from study skills sessions provided by an external specialist company.
