Department Vision Statement

KS3 & 4

It is our shared vision to ensure that all students receive high quality Religious and Citizenship education in line with national standards. Students will develop their spiritual, moral, social and cultural education through a holistic curriculum. Our programme is designed to stimulate and encourage individuals to be respectful, tolerant citizens in society capable of fostering healthy relationships. We aim to provide students with the knowledge, skills and qualities they need to keep themselves healthy, safe and prepared for life and work beyond education.


Students are encouraged to explore beliefs, experiences and values whilst learning about themselves, becoming knowledge rich in the process. Students are encouraged to challenge and cite misconceptions, whilst developing their own personal understanding about faith, meaning and morality.
