Teacher of Religious Studies

St George's College, WeybridgeSurrey

Religious Studies is a core curriculum subject which is taught throughout Years 7–13 (First Year to Upper Sixth). The department seeks to support and promote the Roman Catholic ethos of the College through an academically rigorous and engaging curriculum. As teachers we seek to provoke challenging questions about the ultimate meaning and purpose of life, right and wrong, the nature of reality and the being of God.  The schemes of work offered by the department develop students’ knowledge and understanding of Christianity, as well as other major religions and alternative world views.

Additionally, we seek to provide opportunities for spiritual growth through deep questioning and experiential teaching. We are mindful of the diversity within our student body and the department aims to provide an environment which enables each individual to discern his or her own unique vocation and to develop their own adult understanding of their faith.

In short, our aim is to produce religiously literate young adults who are able to express clearly what they and others believe so that they are prepared for the adult world.  This will enable them to develop respect and sensitivity to others, particularly those with different faiths and beliefs and therefore, to combat prejudice and negative discrimination. The department works closely with the College Chaplaincy and pursues outreach opportunities such preparing all Year 13 students to deliver RE lessons to children in local primary schools
