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.
Religious education is taught by class teachers and is mainly through reading and discussing stories from the religious texts. As with the teaching of history, our teaching methods equip the girls with the facts and evidence and allows them to have a creative response, exploring and practicing their written skills. The girls also have the opportunity to handle religious artifacts and their knowledge and understanding is strengthened by numerous visits to religious buildings and sites.
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 an annual Christmas Services at St Peter’s Church. We also support a range of charities and communities both locally and abroad.
