Theology, Philosophy & Religion
Toleration, kindness and understanding of all religious beliefs and values are central to the ethos of the school and this is reflected throughout all departments as well as in our daily life. This allows the children to develop the skills that are vital to their success, happiness and understanding in a multicultural society, both in the present and their future. We have many links with the local Parish church; holding our carol service there and welcoming the clergy to various events and assemblies.
The children are taught to become curious about a variety of different world religions and, as they get older, it is an integral part of the Prep School Baccalaureate syllabus. Reflecting on the people, texts and stories we study, our pupils are encouraged to express their own opinions on ethical issues and to be proud of their own independent thoughts on philosophical question.
