Religious Studies

Our Religious Studies curriculum seeks to bring to life some of the most exciting examples of human belief and culture alive in the world today.

Students investigate themes of faith, philosophy, ethics and belief, challenging their ability to think and analyse some of the biggest questions that face humanity.

We aim to give students a greater sense of place and identity in an ever-changing world. Themes of tolerance and understanding will be regularly drawn upon.

Students should gain a depth and breadth of knowledge about the beliefs and practices of each religion. They should also develop empathy and respect for others regardless of their religious preferences.

They will understand the importance and place of religion in the world today, historically and culturally through the study of ethical and philosophical issues and consider the significance and impact of religion upon the individual and the community.
