Our Department aims to assist every pupil in developing skills that will enable them to interpret some of the key beliefs and ideas that are prevalent in both our ever evolving multi- cultural society and the wider world. We encourage our pupils to be active thinkers and develop their own values and ideas and be able to express these in a sensitive manner, showing respect to both themselves and others around them.
