We strive to achieve excellence and overcome challenges through mutual respect and consideration, underpinned by Gospel values and the example of Christ. As a department, we put these values at the centre of everything we do. We adapt lessons to meet the needs of the individual learner, using scaffolding and a range of adaptive teaching strategies to allow all students to fulfil their God-given potential.
We recognise the importance of nurturing the spiritual life of the individual. Our curriculum is sequenced in such a way that enables students to deepen their faith as well as investigating questions of faith, truth and the meaning of life. We direct curriculum time to understanding the ways in which Catholics practice their faith, allowing students to spend time in our new chapel.
We strive to empower students to engage with and understand religious and non-religious worldviews. Our students study a broad range of aspects Roman Catholic Christianity, in-line with the ethos of our school. Islam is a subject at we study at KS3 reflecting our local area and the Muslim students we have in our care. At KS4 pupils study a second religion of Judaism and we study non-religious attitudes towards modern issues relating to the wider world. We regularly discuss the importance of mutual respect, allowing all members of our school community to feel welcome, valued and respected.
