SMSC at Gretton

Personal development is at the heart of everything we do here at Gretton and is woven throughout our whole curriculum. The overarching term personal development includes PSHE (including RSE), SMSC (including British Values), Preparation for Adulthood and Careers development.

We see Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development as important for individual students and for society as a whole. We believe it is at the heart of what education is all about - helping students to grow and develop.








We strive to create a learning environment which promotes respect, diversity and self-awareness and equips all of our students with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values they will need to succeed in their future lives.

Woven throughout our curriculum and extracurricular activities, we ensure that we promote fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and tolerance and respect.
