Character Development

Our curriculum builds students’ character.

  • We are committed to providing a curriculum which goes beyond the acquisition of knowledge and ensures students develop as well-rounded, responsible individuals ready to contribute to society;
  • We believe that College has a vital role to play in ensuring the social, moral, spiritual, cultural, mental and physical development of all our students;
  • The Code of Conduct makes clear the part College, home and students play in terms of Learning and Behaving the Minsthorpe Way;
  • We know that students learn best in a safe, calm and orderly environment and we set high expectations for all students, which provide the foundations for a safe College community where students can develop positive attitudes to learning and show care and respect for others;
  • Our coherent SMSC curriculum extends across all aspects of College life, including a P&A curriculum, assemblies (live and recorded) and lesson time;
  • Our Learning for Life (L4L) curriculum includes Personal Development, Relationship Sexual Health Education (RSHE) and Religious Education (RE). It is carefully sequenced to ensure that age appropriate content is delivered to students starting College in Year 7 to leaving in Y11 or Post 16.
  • We work in partnership with external agencies to enrich our offer and are responsive to the needs of individuals and to circumstances with the aim of students taking increasing responsibility for their own development, safety and well-being.
