Information for schools

A lifesaving resource from the Orchid, the UK’s leading male cancer charity.

The Your Privates Schools Pack is a downloadable resource accredited by the PSHE Association designed to raise awareness of testicular cancer with secondary school pupils.

Testicular cancer most commonly affects men aged between 15-45 years with around 2300 men being diagnosed each year. If found at an early stage a cure rate of 98% is usually possible and even when testicular cancer has spread to other areas of the body a cure can still be achieved.

The Your Privates Schools Pack and microsite was designed to be used by any school professional, not just teachers. We have already received excellent feedback from school nurses, teaching assistants and volunteers conducting assembly talks who have found the pack useful and informative.
