Religious Education

Religious Education Department

The Religious Education and Chaplaincy Department’s Mission is a unique one. It is to facilitate the pupils on a journey. This journey is 4 fold. It is combining the academic, Spiritual, ethic and Philosophical. It uses the relationship between school, home, parish and world wide community of the church and beyond. Through our RE lessons and Home learning projects pupils will be challenged to be a critical thinker to be inspired and excited by faith. To be open minded and use skills such as empathy. Pupils are challenged to reflect and find their own views in an all inclusive and supportive environment.

All pupils study Edexcel GCSE in year 10 and 11. This is 2 papers, one taken in May of year 10 and the other in June of year 11. The first paper is philosophical and ethics based and the other is St Mark’s Gospel. Key stage 3 is spiral scheme which introduces and supports most aspects of the GCSE.
