Religious Studies

Religious Studies is a popular and very successful subject at our school. As a diverse school, we see our role as essential in supporting students to understand and appreciate other faiths and cultures. We also support students in understanding how different moral codes influence society and help them develop an understanding of their own opinions and influences. Religious Studies is taught in dedicated classrooms which house specialist resources and artefacts.

In Year 8, we follow the Leeds Locally Agreed Syllabus which encourages students to study and understand the ways that people live in their immediate community, as well as considering their own place within that community.

Just for 2016/2017, due to the change in our transition curriculum, Year 8 students follow a foundation curriculum which ensures that they build a clear understanding of each of the six main world faiths. They learn about holy books, places, people, festivals and important people from each of the main world faiths.
