Through a high quality and diverse curriculum, Victory Citizenship gives all learners, the knowledge and skills to be successful in the future and helping them play a full and active part in society.  Victory Citizenships is designed to provide students with the skills to make informed personal decisions about their wellbeing, health, relationships and career aspirations in order to create a happy and successful adult life.  Within the subject we teach PSHE, Citizenship and Religious Education, our focus is on the diverse, multi-religious and multicultural society that we live in.  We cover a variety of topics within Victory Citizenship that will enable the students to put this knowledge into practice as they develop the capacity to make sound decision when facing risks, challenged and complex contexts.  This allows the students to be reflective learners and able to consider their behaviours and habits and look to make adjustments to be best version of themselves and a good Victory Citizens.

We work with a range of external professionals which support our curriculum.  The career education we offer, allows our students to prepare to play a role in the global economy by offering guidance and support in choosing the most appropriate career pathways.  Students are given the opportunity to consider a vast range of careers and we work closely with universities in the area which support this area of the curriculum to aspire the students to proceed on to higher levels of education.
