Religious Education

Through studying different topics, students in our school are able to gain a deep awareness of their own and others’ identities. They are able to ask questions on lots of ‘big questions’ whilst they wrestle with the mysteries of life and answers given by a variety of religions (and non-religious groups) about their beliefs. Students are able to develop a clear sense of what is of real value, particularly in this fast-changing world we live in today. This enables them to become more tolerant of other people and ideas that are not their own.
