In Religious Studies we aim to broaden your view of the world. Religion saturates just about every society and continues to influence world events. This subject encourages you to question, debate, discuss. It should appeal to anyone with an enquiring mind and a thirst for knowledge.

Tours and Trips
We are developing more field trips for our department every year. However, this year we have taken our GCSE students to visit a Mosque and our local church. Our A Level students have had the chance to study Philosophy at Eton with the Head of Theology.
We have the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, coming to discuss his life in 2018.
