Personal Development Provision

"The school provides a thoughtful and well-considered personal development programme. Pupils learn valuable lessons for future life, such as how to protect their personal information and stay safe when online. Strong links exist with the local community." - Ofsted 2023

At Testbourne Community School, we believe, passionately, that education is more than just achieving academic excellence.  Our Personal Development provision aims to develop the whole child, and equip them with the knowledge, skills and attributes to find their role in an ever-changing world and make a positive contribution within society.    

Personal Development at Testbourne is both a discrete curriculum subject and an overarching multi-faceted provision.  For an overview of our Personal Development provision, please view the recording of our Information Evening for parents or click on the links below. 

The information on this webpage is reviewed annually in-line with the policy review schedule.  If you have any questions or comments regarding any aspect of the wider curriculum provision, please email Mrs E. Sudds at
