 Religious Education

All our students study the Northern Ireland Core Curriculum in Religious Education from Year 8 to Year 12.

Our students work together in classes which include young people of many different backgrounds, including all the branches of the Christian faith, members of other world religions such as Islam, as well as young people who do not hold religious beliefs at all.

Whilst we share the core curriculum with schools of all sectors, it is obvious that the diversity of our student body adds a richness to our explorations of each other’s beliefs and traditions.

Religious Studies is offered at GCSE level in Years 11 and 12, whilst Advanced Level studies are an option in Sixth Form. GCSE Religious Studies focuses on the Christian faith in all its various traditions. GCSE Islam is also available as an extra-curricular activity for students with a particular interest in that religion.

Our students organise a wide range of visits to each other’s places of worship, putting into practice the college’s motto, ‘Learning From Each Other.’

It is a fundamental value that each of our students is entitled to hold their own religious or philosophical beliefs, and to be respected for them. We sincerely hope for each student to develop within their own faith tradition, and to know that their peers of other backgrounds respect them for who they are and what they believe.

The Christian focus of the NI core curriculum is supplemented with short explorations of Islam, Judaism and Hinduism in Years 8, 9 and 10 respectively
