Citizenship Project





At KS4 the program is organised differently.  Both Year 10 and 11 students take part in non-timetabled days, which are primarily workshop based sessions, delivered in conjunction with external organisations to provide students with both specialised information and unique experiences.  They include the following themes:

  • Democracy
  • Personal Finance
  • You Only Live Once - theatre in education programme. 
  • Speed Networking with Industry
  • Drive Alive - covers issues relating to learning to drive and raising awareness of the consequences and the law relating to the same. 

In addition, Year 11 students take part in a weekly lecture based program that is delivered on a Wednesday morning during registration time.  The topics covered include Risk, Managing Health, Economic Well Being, Relationships, Democracy, Human Rights, Gambling, Young People and the Law and Leaving Home.  

At present there is no examination course for this subject at Selby High School.

Clubs / Extra Curricular Activities, visits and trips

Prison Me No Way is a crime awareness event that our Year 9 students experience and is delivered in school by the trust annually as part of a non-timetable day. 

To further enrich the curriculum through both key stages, external speakers are invited into school to give specialised information as necessary. Partners currently include members of the Police and Fire and Rescue Services, School Nurse, NYCC Road Safety Officers and Selby Council.
