beyond the classroom

RE has run several trips in recent years to enhance a students experience and understanding of some of the topics studied. These include:

  • Visiting the local Church (to support the units on Rites of Passage and Places of Worship).
  • Visiting the Mosque in Heeley.
  • Visiting Liverpool to examine the modern Catholic Cathedral.
  • Visiting the Holocaust Memorial Centre.

We have also in the past made excellent use of one of the local vicars (Rev. Sue Stewart) to support GCSE students with understanding some of the indepth moral themes. This has enabled students to question a religious figure on topics such as euthanasia and the death penalty.
