In RS we aim to help pupils:

  • Think for themselves, giving opinions on moral and religious issues;

  • Gain knowledge of the Bible stories, centring on the life and teachings of Christ;

  • Understand the beliefs and practices of world religions other than their own, in an open-minded and respectful way.

This unique subject covers many important real life matters and many aspects of the Christian faith, and other world religions.

What We Offer

All classes follow an interesting and varied course, covering aspects of the Bible and moral issues that young people may face today; showing our young people that RS is relevant to all pupils.
