Why do we learn Religious Education?
“No person in the modern world can be considered educated without a basic knowledge of all the great religions of the world.” – E.D. Hirsch
The curriculum takes an academically ambitious, knowledge-rich approach, ensuring that students have secure knowledge that enables them to both understand and engage with the universal questions which have preoccupied humankind through the ages, as well as the diverse ways in which these questions have been answered.
By studying some of the most significant and enduring ideas and traditions to have arisen through history, students’ understanding of the past, the modern world, humankind, and themselves is enriched. The curriculum ensures that students are prepared both intellectually and personally to engage in a complex, multi-religious and multi-secular world.
