Our Personal Development curriculum aims to develop students into confident, curious, respectful, resilient and ambitious young people.
It includes relationships, sex education and health education, as well as PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education) and SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Education).

Responsible leaders and active citizens
The personal development curriculum is designed to impart powerful knowledge to our students so that they can gain the skills, knowledge and understanding they need to lead a “happy”, independent life, to become informed, and to be responsible leaders and active citizens within their local community and beyond.
HAB staff have high expectations of the girls and HAB girls have high expectations of themselves. Our ethos is one of being uncompromising and caring in everything that we do. This is how we create a happy and safe learning environment, with firm but fair discipline.
Our two guiding aims are ensuring students not only receive a high quality of education, but alongside this a high quality of care. HAB is a harmonious and supportive environment that prides itself on the compassion, respect and ambition that permeates through all that we do.
