Religious studies

Religious Studies is an academic subject which develops important interpretive skills and encourages pupils to ask challenging questions about the meaning of life and death, faith in God, the nature of right and wrong and what it means to be human. It also enables them to reflect on links between religious thought and a wide variety of issues facing contemporary society.

The RS Department aims to:

  • Give pupils an understanding of how beliefs and values affect our lives
  • Develop knowledge and understanding of the Bible and Judeo-Christian theological thought
  • Introduce pupils to the traditions and beliefs of other major world religions
