As Activities Week also happened to be national School Diversity Week, students in Year 9 took part in an LGBT session which aimed to promote awareness of equality and the law relating to LGBT. Many lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) young people develop their sexual and gender identities within supportive families and communities and are leading
happy lives.

However, many other LGBT young people experience serious levels of homophobia, transphobia and exclusion in their schools, youth clubs and local areas so at Culcheth High School, over the coming year we will be working with The Proud Trust to train staff in how we can best support our LGBT young people.
