What's it all about?

We’re all about understanding

The aim of the Religious Education (RE) department at St Cuthbert’s is to inspire and empower students to live out the Gospel values and become rounded individuals. Through an energising and innovative curriculum, passionate teaching and positive role models, students are motivated and nurtured to become the ‘Good Samaritan’.

RE is a creative subject bringing religion alive for students at St Cuthbert’s. Learning takes place through a variety of means including using Lego and plasticine, debate, use of QR codes and Twitter. It is also a subject where student’s can share opinions and beliefs in a safe environment, which allows them to become open minded and respectful to all.

The RE department has a retreat programme including residential retreats to the Lake District. The department takes part in various charity activities and trips linked to British Values and global issues.
