Religious Education

Like Aristotle, here at Rugby Free Secondary School we believe that education should have an impact on your character. 


Religious studies not only offers the opportunity for high quality academic excellence, but also a chance to enhance your personal excellence. The themes and topics covered will change how you think about the world, society and religion itself. 


Educating the mind 

without educating the 

heart is not education 

at all. 



It is our intent for the religious studies element of our school curriculum to engage, inspire, challenge and encourage students, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to answer challenging philosophical questions.


Religious studies contributes significantly to the ethos of the school, and enables students to ask deep, and often searching questions, about their own faith and beliefs, and the beliefs, faith and opinion of others, regarding relevant contemporary moral Issues. Students will be be able to deepen their understanding of God, as encountered and taught by Christians and Muslims. The teaching of religious studies makes links between the beliefs and practices, and values systems of a range of faiths and world views studied.


The Religious Studies Curriculum will help develop responsibilities and respect for all aspects of diversity, whether it be social, cultural and religious, and prepare students well for life in modern Britain.
