Subject Vision
In iD lessons we will play a major part in facilitating the College’s vision on the emphasis on social, moral, spiritual and cultural development. To produce a generation of students who are socially aware, mature citizens, who can make well informed and educated choices.  The iD curriculum will be inclusive and provide students with unique opportunities to speak openly and express opinions, beliefs and values in a safe structured environment. Students will be challenged and inspired and learn the value of tolerance and listening to others who have opposing viewpoints.  All students will be empowered to express themselves fluently.
