Students follow a bespoke programme aligned with the locally agreed syllabus.
Many of the skills learnt in RE lessons are not exclusive to the subject. Being able to evaluate opinions, understand sources, interpret language, symbolism, metaphors and allegories are all useful in other subjects such as History, English, Music, and Languages. To develop these skills, our course involves a detailed examination of the Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam) and important aspects of cyclic religions (Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism). The schemes of work are structured to provide the foundation needed at KS4. Students are taught to conceptualise, analyse and substantiate their opinions with evidence and lines of reasoning. This then creates a smooth transition to achieve their potential at GCSE.
