PSHE Sub Menu

The quality of pupils’ personal development is excellent.
ISI Inspection Report, May 2013

Personal, Social and Health Education features prominently in all that we do at Shrewsbury House and is an important part of our education and development of the whole child.

PSHE addresses spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues and aims to improve the well-being of the pupils at SHS as well as equipping and preparing them for life beyond prep school.

PSHE is embedded in subjects across the curriculum. The boys all have a PSHE tutor session once a week with their own form tutor, which allows an age specific approach to discussing issues. This provides excellent opportunity to explore and learn about some of the big issues of the world and many ideas and topics that the boys will encounter in their daily lives, both now and in years to come.

In addition to addressing issues within tutor sessions and lessons, specific PSHE related sessions are set up at various points over the year, with visiting groups and specialist speakers brought in. Examples of recent such sessions include: Internet Safety, Sex Education, Financial Awareness, ‘Self- Esteem and Self-Confidence’, and Personal Safety.

PSHE themes are often used by the whole school as ‘themes for the week’, and are developed further in Assemblies, House Meetings and Year Group Meetings, thereby raising awareness and understanding of topics across the whole school and encouraging cross-curricular link-up. The PSHE themes play a vital part in encouraging the boys to develop their own personal thinking and to understand better their own position and contribution to the wider world, while also stressing the significance of considering the needs and position of others around them.
