Religious Studies

Students begin their philosophical journey in Year 7 by engaging with a series of ultimate, fundamental questions such as: Is there a meaning to life? Who am I? What is right and wrong? Students learn to explain how different beliefs about these questions influence our attitudes and behaviour. Students study a wide range of views with a particular focus upon responses from the Christian, Hindu and Humanist traditions in Year 7, moving through into looking at a range of other world religions from Year 8 onwards. Through interactive learning, students examine how the teachings of these faiths are reflected in religious practices. To further learning, faith visitors offer their perspectives to students in the classroom and visits allow students to gain first-hand insights into different perspectives.
