Religious Education


  • Studying RE will enable students to explore, and engage with, life’s ultimate questions – considering their own opinions towards topics as well as a range of religious perspectives.
  • We aim to provide learners with the skills required to become reflective and critical thinkers who have the confidence to challenge and respect beliefs and practices that impact their lives and the lives of others.
  • We hope through the study of RE that we develop well rounded learners  who have a real sense of open mindedness and tolerance with a desire to celebrate the differences of others.
  • Ultimately we want to develop a climate where students to enjoy the subject and see the relevance of it in their every day lives.
