"The outcome of religious education is religiously literate and engaged young people who have the knowledge, understanding and skills to reflect spiritually, think ethically and theologically and who are aware of the demands of religious commitment in every day life."

The Religious Education Curriculum Directory for Catholic Schools (2012)

In the RE Department we aim to affirm the unique value and importance of each student, ensure that all pupils have the opportunity to grow in their faith and to provide a coherent and accessible curriculum that challenges the students academically, morally and spiritually.

We endeavour to teach by example the Gospel values of Christ and to promote the Catholic faith, whilst encouraging the students to achieve their potential.

We regularly evaluate our schemes of work with regards to range of teaching styles, differentiation, resources, assessment and examination results.

Our most recent inspection report states:

"Classroom religious education is outstanding…Pupil attainment at both GCSE and A level is exceptional…The expectation of teachers and pupils alike are high. In lessons there is a real sense of mutual respect and collaboration which makes for an industrious, positive working atmosphere…The leadership and management of religious education are outstanding.”
