The religious studies department believes that high quality religious education plays a crucial role in preparing our young people for their future roles and participation in modern diverse Britain.

Students will study Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism, and Sikhism in year 7 and 8. The key stage 4 curriculum, delivered in years 9, 10, and 11, follows the AQA religious studies A specification.

We expect all staff to undertake a pastoral role as a form tutor. There are also opportunities to get involved in the wider life of the school through trips and extra-curricular activities.
