The programme, called Respect, was developed after research showed shocking attitudes among young people to sexual assault and violence within relationships.
The programme will run for an eight week trial period during which secondary school pupils will study modules on rape, domestic violence, gender equality, positive relationships and anti-bullying.
Primary school children will take part in a modified version of the programme later in the year.
The project has been funded by a Home Office grant of more than£400,000.
A national survey of more than 2,000 young people between the ages of 14-21 in 1998 found:
-One in two young men and one in three young women thought it was okay to hit a woman or force her to have sex in certain circumstances
-Forced sex was more acceptable than hitting to both males and females
-More than a third of young men thought they might hit a woman or force her to have sex.
