The Religious Studies department at Rydal Penrhos School is one which aims to provide knowledge, understanding and evaluation of many aspects of religion, spirituality, philosophy and morality.
Why study Religious Studies?
We aim to introduce pupils to the challenging and varied nature of religion, and to the ways in which this is reflected in experience, belief and practice. This helps pupils to identify and explore questions about the meaning of life, and to consider such questions in relation to religious traditions.
The emphasis of the courses of study is on understanding the relevance of religious teaching for life in the 21st century. The curriculum within Religious Studies explores aspects of religious beliefs but does not presuppose faith.
"...understanding the relevance of religious teaching for life in the 21st century."
Pupils will be encouraged to express their own reasoned views about the issues discussed, whilst developing respect and sensitivity towards others and their beliefs and values.
