Religious Education

Our WRHS1118 RE curriculum aims to engage students on a five-year learning journey of religion, atheism, international culture and worldwide issues.

We aim to create, curious, compassionate, knowledgeable and culturally aware students who leave us with a secure knowledge and understanding of all 6 major world faiths and prevalent atheistic world views, their impact in the world and a culturally decisive awareness of issues; past and present.

We aim to consistently promote British values and to meaningfully embed concepts of kindness, empathy and respect.

We aim for our curriculum to be rich in more than just academic knowledge and we hope that students feel they have really ‘experienced’ our curriculum in a variety of ways including music, media and art.
