Religious Studies

We aim to develop a genuine interest in religion and philosophy, and to equip pupils with morals and values for life.
Religious Studies is a highly valued and important subject at the Prep School and we aim to enhance pupils’ quality of religious understanding through the effective delivery of a varied programme of study.

Religious Studies teaching values each person’s thoughts, ideas and beliefs and seeks to give pupils moral and ethical values that will enable them to live healthy and productive adult lives. These aims and objectives are achieved through a range of different methods and pupils develop their subject knowledge, confidence and ability to express themselves through reading, factual and creative writing, role play, discussion and debate.
The programme of study is closely linked to the National Curriculum up to and including Year Six. Years Seven and Eight follow the Common Entrance Syllabus.
