Religious Education asks questions about the meaning, purpose and sheer diversity of existence.  It lends itself to be delivered in many different ways. The Religious Education Department seeks to give all pupils, whatever their ability, a toolkit of techniques and a body of knowledge. Armed with these, pupils will be better able to deal with the vast array of personal and community dilemmas they will face and to make better sense of the world without resorting to passive acceptance and prejudice.
