RE, Philosophy and Ethics

The purpose of the Religious Education curriculum at The Howard School is:

  • to introduce our students to different beliefs, values and practises.
  • to celebrate some of the similarities and differences between key beliefs and teachings.
  • to explore how different religions celebrate their history and to support our students to understand rites of passage.
  • to enable students to critically assess different responses to ethical issues.
  • to support our students to evaluate the role of religious beliefs in the modern day and challenge our students to define what is sacred and what is profane.
  • to challenge our students to consider more deeply philosophical questions on life after death, evil and suffering and to pose to them existential questions on our existence, evaluating their effectiveness.
  • to provide our students with an opportunity to explore their own moral compass and find their voice in discussions and debates.
