Religious Education

The department aims to educate pupils for the world in which they live.

Learning outcomes

  • At Key Stage 3 students learn independent thinking skills and the ability to explain their own opinions on moral and religious issues. They develop an understanding that  different people have different attitudes to religious and moral problems.
  • At Key Stage 4 students consider religion and ethics. RE is compulsory for all pupils who usually sit a short-course GCSE, but can sit a full GCSE. The short course exam is sat at the end of Year 10.

Teaching methods

Lessons involve group discussions and presentations, critical viewing of videos and DVDs, the use of religious artefacts, textbooks and newspapers. We also make visits to local religious sites (e.g. church, mosque, gurdwara). ICT is used for research and the showing of work in the form of Powerpoint presentations.
