(Head of Religious Studies)
The Religious Studies vision is to ensure that all students develop a desire to learn: For the students to take an interest in the world around them and to question what they see. We aim to develop their spiritual and moral awareness through interesting and relevant lessons.
KS3-Religious studies and year 8 Citizenship. Students learn about the 6 major world religions, Christianity, Islam, Sikhism, Hinduism and Judaism. We look at the Key founders of each religion and festivals. In Citizenship we explore global issues and learn to debate and enhance their research skills. We look at rights and responsibilities, Democracy and Justice, Diversity and community, crime and punishment, war child, and animal rights.
