Religious Studies

The Religious Education Department follows the Birmingham Agreed Syllabus and aims to foster an empathy and respect for the beliefs and cultural background of our pupils.

The scheme of work for Key Stage 3 is a broad and balanced curriculum that encourages pupils to learn from and about religious and secular beliefs and practices in an atmosphere of respect and tolerance providing pupils with the scope to explore the challenges of faith on social and ethical issues. In Year 9 all pupils will begin the full course GCSE Religious Studies for examination in Year 11.

Very pleasant.

Reminder to all Y11's that GCSE results will be available to collect from school on Thursday 23rd August between 9.30am and 1.00pm. If you not are able to come into school that day, please provide a stamped addressed envelope before next Friday so results can be posted home.

Our pupils really enjoyed their visit to the @SoJ_BCU yesterday afternoon. They were able to see their pieces on display and also see other craft makers at work. It was very inspiring and a fantastic opportunity for them. Pop in and have a look!
