Religious Education

We promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural development through the teaching of religious education. All girls explore the beliefs and practices within Christianity and other world religions including Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism and Buddhism.

Assemblies, although Christian based, also reflect the diversity of religious festivals and practices that are celebrated in our school. The whole school community attends and participates in annual Christmas and Harvest Services at St Mary’s Church, a local church with which hawse have close links. We also support a range of charities and communities both locally and abroad.

Religious education is taught by form tutors from Nursery to Year 3, where cross-curricular themes are developed. From Year 4, the subject is taught by a specialist humanities teacher. The girls have the opportunity to handle religious artifacts and their knowledge and understanding is strengthened by numerous visits to religious buildings and sites.
