Copleston High School

Health And Social Care

Studying Health and Social Care at Copleston will provide students with the opportunity to develop their personal and professional skills through interactions with those that work or are supported within the health, social care and childcare sector. As well as developing their theoretical knowledge and understanding of a range of important areas in health and social care such as; equality and diversity, safeguarding, understanding mental health and learning disabilities. Health and Social care is a subject that can lead the way to a variety of future carers for students.


“A modern health and social care system has to be completely focussed on the needs of it’s users. ”
