Religion, Philosophy and Ethics

Current Teaching Staff:  

Mr A Strachan - Head of Department

Mrs D Bloomfield

Miss R Thompson


Examination board and syllabus:  AQA  

'Any curriculum that reflects the world as it has been, is, and will be, must include the study of religion.  It is central to life for most of the World's peoples'

Religious Education is taught to all girls in Year 7-9, having the same time allocation as other Humanities subjects. There is a non-examined unit of Ethics and Values through Year 10 and 11 for all girls. It is also an option at GCSE, AS and A level. The department is focused on providing a challenging, academic curriculum for all, irrespective of beliefs held.

Throughout the Key Stages, a variety of approaches are used to develop analysis and evaluation. Success in this subject is shown through the ability to articulate the views of others as well as the decisiveness to criticize and make judgments.
