Religious Studies

Religious Studies take place throughout the school. In the Montessori, it is implicit within their study of knowledge and understanding of the world, however, it becomes a discrete lesson from Year 1 onwards.

There are two broad aims - to learn about religion and to learn from religion. At Perrott Hill we study the six major world religions including their places of worship, symbolism and beliefs. We also give the pupils a thorough knowledge of key Old and New Testament Bible stories, so that they will have an understanding of the text and of its relevance in today's world. They will also link ideas and knowledge to contemporary issues, such as stewardship, poverty and faith in action, resulting in rounded and tolerant individuals who can consider the values of others and relate these to their own ideas.
