RE is taught by an enthusiastic team of graduate teachers who seek to share their love of the subject with all those they teach. RE has probably changed more than any other subject since our students parents and carers were at school, encompassing a fascinating and diverse range of philosophical, ethical and theological questions. Humanistic / non-religious worldviews are explored alongside religious perspectives. We want our students to be talking about their learning when they get home from school!

Where might success in RE lead? A qualification in RE will take our students anywhere they might want to go! They will have developed good people skills. It is a subject that helps people develop empathy for others, an important skill in almost any job that involves meeting and dealing with people; e.g. receptionist, social work, police, legal profession, education, advertising, sales. It has led our past students into other academic fields such as Ethics, Philosophy, Law, Theology, Criminology and Critical Thinking. To our knowledge only one student has gone on to be a vicar!
