We aim to provide a broad-based curriculum in Religious Studies which students will increase their knowledge and understanding of the world we live in whilst being encouraged to respond to significant questions of meaning and value in a caring and sharing ethos.
Assemblies focus on memorial days such as Remembrance Day and the Holocaust Memorial Day. Students also gain information about RISE values and the importance of respect.
What have our pupils said about the RS Department?
'Religious Studies helps me to express my opinions in a respectful way. It also teaches me how I should handle sensitive situations in the world and within different cultural societies.’ Ceara, year 9
‘Religious Studies is a good subject because we get to discuss our opinions and gain a better understanding of others.’ Evie, year 9
‘Religious Studies gives you a wider understanding of the world we live in, e.g. learning about different religions and current issues. It allows you to be optimistic and enables you to put across your own opinions and questions. Religious Studies also allows you to understand why people may disagree with you and your beliefs systems.’ Ruvimbo, year 10
‘Religious Studies allows for us to learn in depth knowledge about religion and cultural societies. It gives us an opportunity to express our own beliefs and compare them to others. We learn about other beliefs as well as our own.’ Remi, year 9
