Life Skills

All of our students take part in Life Skills which is a culmination of PSHE and Citizenship with students looking at health and relationships, drug education, personal finances, rights and responsibilities to develop an awareness of the world round them. Life Skills aims to prepare students for life after Lostock College, we guide students in their applications to Colleges and support them with their applications. We are pleased to welcome a variety of specialist visitors within this curriculum area to enhance the learning of students for example The Message Trust, The Police, The British Red Cross and Barclays Bank amongst others.
