Alton School

Religious Education

Head of Religious Studies, Mr Gay

In R.E. we study and discuss some of the most important and fascinating questions about what matters most in life and what it means to lead a good life.  We want all pupils, whether or not they are Christian, to have a good understanding of:

  • What Christians believe
  • How they practise their faith and pray together
  • How and why Christan Churches differ from one another
  • How the Church has developed

We also look at all other religions, particularly seeking to understand differences and similarities.

All our pupils are expected to take GCSE Religious Education and take the examination in Year 10.
