Religious Studies

Religious Studies lessons at Ellesmere are age appropriate and planned specifically to take into account a variety of considerations such as cognitive development, social experiences, learning preferences and common interests. Our time with the students allows us to consider a range of beliefs and values and to promote tolerance and build HPL competencies. Lessons are varied, encourage creativity and utilise a range of interactive resources. Across the different year groups pupils encounter stories, symbols, key figures and thinkers, important texts, moral dilemmas and the biggest questions of the universe.
