All students take Jewish Studies at KS3. Engaging, interactive lessons explore Jewish belief and practice, dip into text and reflect on prayer, consider the impact of the Holocaust and the history and significance of Israel to the Jewish people. Current and topical ethical issues are explored through a Jewish lens and offer students a chance to connect with faith and consider its impact on their life choices.
All students at KS4 take the AQA religious studies GCSE and some choose the OCR religion, ethics and philosophy A level.
Comparative faith units offer all of our students a voice in the classroom and a sense of feeling valued and respected.
We work closely with other departments to maximise cross-curricular activities, such as baking challot in Food Tech, using shabbat symbols in Art and choosing books with a Jewish narrative in English.
