Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural (SMSC) education

We want to create an ethos, which develops students spiritually, morally, socially and culturally. We want to ensure that students are treated as individuals with individual needs.


We aim to deliver spiritual, moral, social and cultural education through all aspects of school life; the curriculum, extra-curricular activities, form time, form-time programme and all assemblies. Each faculty is encouraged to take opportunities to embed content that will help to further student’s personal development in the areas of SMSC. We want to ensure that the personal development of students is a fundamental part of the academic and pastoral system at Stoke High School – Ormiston Academy.
