Departments & Subjects
Our mission is to work with parents and the local community to provide a broad curriculum and a creative approach to learning. Our intent is to enable all students to fulfil their unique potential and make the world a better place through their informed choices and actions.
Our curriculum meets the requirements of national guidelines and explicitly intends to support students to become :
“The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart.”
In Religious Studies pupils learn what people from different faiths believe and do. We try to understand what motivates religious believers, and why their values and perspectives vary within and across different religions. Pupils explore both religious and non-religious perspectives on every topic from what happens when we die to relationships, marriage and divorce as well as other global issues central to our society today.
Pupils develop analytical and evaluation skills: identifying reasons to support their points of view, weighing up other people’s opinions, beliefs, and philosophies; looking for evidence and examples that give a deeper appreciation of complex life issues. Pupils learn to understand and relate to people whose beliefs, values, and viewpoints may be different from their own.
Pupils learn to appreciate how human beings make sense of their existence and the world around them, and to explore the meaning, purpose, and value of their own lives. We encourage pupil’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, to prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of the present and the future.
Teachers work with the ‘Living Difference’ agreed syllabus in Hampshire to support pupils develop a thirst and love for learning in the subject.
