Religious Education

Religious Education is at the heart of the life of the Catholic School. While the School, in all aspects of its life, is involved in the formation of its pupils, Religious Education has a leading role in their academic, spiritual and social development. More than any subject area, we in the department are concerned with the development of the “whole person”. Making progress academically is not enough, in fact it can prove dangerous. Intelligence married to good character, a character promoted by the values of Jesus, the Christ of the gospels, that is the education we offer our students. In addition to the regular prayer life of the school, there are many opportunities for pupils to get involved with spiritual activities, through the preparation of liturgy, residential retreats, and interest groups. The R.E. Department is well supported by the Chaplaincy, which is an area in its own right.

Religious Education is taught throughout the school to every pupil in every year. In accordance with the recommendation of the Bishops of England and Wales, the whole of the school spends on average just under 10% of their lesson time in Religious Education. In this school this means two periods of sixty minutes for years 8, 9 and 10, and three periods of sixty minutes for years 7 and 11. Most of the R.E. curriculum is taught by three teachers.
