Religious Education

All our students follow a general Religious Studies programme which provides them with a rare opportunity to discuss and debate a wide range of topics. This is a non examined subject and is part of our personal development programme.

These lessons will be thought-provoking and fun, enabling you to meet fellow students from a range of different cultural backgrounds, sharing ideas and beliefs in a stimulating environment.

You will have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of events and activities run by the RE staff and the chaplain.

This year students worked to support causes like Amnesty International and CAFOD, organised Senior Citizens’ Christmas party and took part in several pilgrimages and retreats.

You will also have the opportunity to join our Christian Union and do voluntary work in the community.
