  • Religious Studies

    All pupils study the six main world religions as a foundation for later study. In Year 7 a phenomenological approach is taken and pupils learn about the worship, places of worship, scriptures, symbols and festivals of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism and Buddhism.

    In Year 8 students study of the lives of the founders/leaders of each religion. From the lives of the founders and/or leaders we can learn the main ideas and philosophy behind the religions. Pupils also learn how these ideas are relevant in modern life and look at how having a religion or none affects the lives of individuals.
