In Religious Education, pupils have the opportunity to explore both the Old and New Testament with a view to understanding God’s relationship with his people and the mission and message of Christ. Within their time at The Towers, pupils will have gained knowledge of other faiths, especially the three Abrahamic faiths of Christianity, Judaism and Islam. The department strives to educate pupils about their place in the global family by considering their role as stewards of God’s creation, the importance of tolerance and the example of Christ in care for the poor and disadvantaged.
The Religious Education (RE) department assists pupils to grow in the knowledge and love of God and of each other. We create a safe environment where all people, of whatever race, colour, creed or status, are equally valued and have equal opportunity to fulfill their academic potential. Pupils are also taught to respect and be knowledgeable of other faiths, striving to build ecumenical and inter-faith relationships and to develop the gifts and talents of each individual.
Extra Curricular Activities
All students have the opportunity to work with the Chaplaincy team in fundraising for charity and for preparation and participation in school liturgies. Students are encouraged to suggest works of charity and to raise whole school awareness through their presentations at school assemblies. Year 11 attend a “Day with a Difference” in Dalesdown retreat centre. It is a wonderful opportunity for prayer and self-reflection.
