Religious Studies enables students to understand the world in which they live. The subject enhances thinking skills, analytical thought and independent learning, equipping students with a set of highly marketable
qualities for further education and the world of employment. Throughout the teaching of Religious Studies an open and honest approach is fostered that allows an environment to be created in which students feel able
to share ideas and develop their own beliefs. As a department we are committed to drawing out the best of our students.
In Years 7 and 8 we look at a global course which encompasses the six main world religions and covers such topics as discrimination, poverty and the environment. Students are encouraged to engage in passionate
discussion and examination of their own world views
At GCSE we focus on philosophical and ethical issues from a Christian perspective, alongside the main teachings of Christianity and Islam, offering students a choice of the full or short course.
