Religious Education

Religious Education offers you both interesting and fantastic career opportunities.

It gives you the type of transferable skills Employers want.

You will learn how to investigate secular and non secular world views. (Histories, Politics, Legal Frameworks, Belief Systems, Philosophy and Ethics to name just a few!).

The knowledge gained, the experience and the discipline, gives you the opportunity to reflect, review and express your own thoughts, plus the thoughts of others.

You will be able to respond to world views in an informed way and have the ability to use and describe your evidence and reasoned arguments.

You will learn to express, evaluate and analyse your own personal responses.

True Religion is about People. It is about Equality and Diversity
