Religious Education and Ethics

Religious Education contributes dynamically to young people’s education in schools by provoking challenging questions about meaning and purpose in life, beliefs about God, ultimate reality, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human. In RE they learn about and from religions and worldviews in local, national and global contexts, to discover, explore and consider different answers to these questions. (NATRE)

They learn to weigh up the value of wisdom from different sources, to develop and express their insights in response, and to agree or disagree respectfully.

In RE at TMHS we encourage our students to develop and deepen their knowledge of the six major world faiths, alongside asking deeper ethical questions on issues facing the world today. Through the study of this course we are aiming to build a culture of tolerance and acceptance, whilst fostering an inquisitive and questioning nature from our students.
