Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural Education

The ethos within The Henry Cort Community College is promoted through a broad set of common values and purposes which underpin the college curriculum and our wider work, including our PSHE, Citizenship, RE and Drop Down Wednesday programme.  These include valuing ourselves, our families and other relationships, the wider groups to which we belong.

We are committed to the virtues of truth, justice, honesty and a sense of moral duty.  These common values are delivered through the themes of social, moral, spiritual and cultural (SMSC) development which permeate the curriculum and life of The Henry Cort Community College.  By instilling and developing these values in our students, we believe that they will leave us as thoughtful, responsible, engaged memebers of society.
