Religious Studies plays an important part in the curriculum. Along with the other subjects in the Humanities range, it widens pupils’ horizons and encourages them to look beyond their own personal experience. All boys are encouraged to develop open minds to new and different concepts, to express their personal opinions and to ask questions freely.
The curriculum is broad, with boys learning about not only Christianity, the life of Jesus and the Old Testament but also the other five main World Religions in detail. We teach pupils tolerance and respect for all cultures and faiths.
Living in a multicultural city, we are lucky to have the opportunity to go to different religious buildings and we also have speakers coming into share their stories.
In Year 7 and 8, we study a syllabus, which marries religion with different ethical and philosophical dilemmas.
