In Religious Education / Philosophy, we will enable young people to develop an understanding of the influence of beliefs, values and traditions on people, their communities and their cultures.
Also, to develop the ability to make reasoned and informed judgements about different religious and moral issues in order to enhance their own spiritual, moral and social development.
What will your child learn in our subject?
In Key Stage 3 students will be learning about and from the six major religions in the world, with a focus on Christianity. They will have the chance to look at the importance of the Environment and man’s position within that responsibility. They will begin to explore and question some of the certainties and uncertainties of life and examine how they are interpreted by religion, which in turn will help them to think about their own lives and the direction in which they, themselves are travelling.
Our A Level groups are flourishing, with many students choosing to develop their key skills of thinking, discussion, debate and reflection. ‘Philosophy is like thinking, only louder’.
Extra-Curricular Activities and Trips
In RE staff are planning trips to local and national sites of worship.
What is special about us?
In RE, we encourage the students to question, think and evaluate their place within society and the wider world and encourage tolerance and understanding of others.
