Religious Education

Curriculum Intent

RE at Trinity is about affirming, encouraging and challenging students on their spiritual journey. We want students to know about Christianity and other principal religions but we also want them to learn from religion and consider how this learning may be applied to their own lives.

RE is an academic subject but it is also about developing opinions and life skills.

Strengths of the Department

In RE we strive to deliver creative and engaging lessons. We want our students to think, to inquire, to question and to be enthusiastic.

We encourage them to learn from each other and often challenge them to work in learning groups as part of a team.

We recognise that learning does not just take place when they write but also when they discuss their opinions and listen to those of others.

We offer a number of curriculum visits and recognise how these can add to the learning experience.

Achievements

The RE GCSE results are consistently outstanding with many students achieving top grades.
