Personal Development & Careers

Students in the sixth form are well prepared for higher education and their future careers.     - Ofsted 2023

At The Hinckley School our Personal Development & Careers Programme (PDC) supports students to develop into well-rounded individuals with not only the knowledge base to unlock their full potential, but the personal and life skills required to thrive as a global citizen in our ever-changing modern world. 

Our extensive PDC programme supports students character development throughout their seven-year journey with each year group enjoying a broad, balanced and age appropriate programme. Each class is supported to discuss, debate and explore age appropriate topics with curiosity, sensitivity and maturity. 

Each year group's rich PDC plan can be split into five sections:

  • Living in and contributing to the wider world 
  • Being a productive citizen 
  • Living a safe and healthy lifestyle
  • PRIDE and Seven Year Journey 
  • Unifrog 

Our Year 12 and 13 students are supported to explore topics such as mental health and emotional wellbeing, readiness for work, intimate relationships, building and maintaining relationships, independence, diversity and inclusion.
