Religious Education Key Stage Three

Religious Education encourages and develops critical thinking, challenging us to think more about our spiritual lives, our values, and our behaviour. It prepares us for life in a pluralist society and deals with the Ultimate questions. Opening minds and equipping students with knowledge, the ability to debate contemporary ethical issues and to be engaged in evaluative and analytical processes is central to our work.

Religious Education provides the students with opportunities to practice the skills involved in making decisions about moral problems, decisions which will impact upon their adult lives. The course is not designed to make students religious; it is about enabling them to think for themselves about religious and moral issues. It prepares them for life.
