Religious Studies at The Royal

Religious Studies is the academic field of multi-disciplinary,  secular study of  religious beliefs, behaviour and institutions. It describes, compares, interprets, and explains religion, emphasising systematic, historically based, and cross-cultural perspectives and looks at the ethnics and philosophy of religion. We teach the course from Year 7 upwards with a GCSE option in Year 9 and 10.

Celebration of Well-being and Character Development

Tuesday, 9 to Friday 12 July

The final week of term will be a celebration of well-being through a host of character development activities. The week begins with the senior school sports day on Tuesday, 9 July.

On Wednesday, 10 and Thursday, 11 July, students will take part in a variety of house competitions and activities that will give them an opportunity to enhance a variety of skills such as leadership, teamwork, problem solving, creativeness and resilience through enterprise, drama and STEM activities to name but a few. During these days, students will also be off site taking part in a number of different activities that encompass our school values such as supporting community projects in the surrounding area and taking to the outdoors for some outdoor and adventurous activities. The school year is brought to a close on Friday, 12 July, with our final house competition. Students will need to use all their skills they have been developing throughout the year and during the week for this end of year extravaganza. We can’t tell you too much about the day as it will spoil the surprise!
