At Oakgrove, RE is taught by a team of trained RE specialists.

Our Aims:

  • To develop critical thinking and problem solving in an ethos of mutual respect and tolerance.

  • Make connections with the student’s learning to other aspects of human experience.

Key Stage 3


RE at Exam Level

Comment from John Keast, Chair, Religious Education Council of England and Wales (REC):
“RE A level provides an excellent foundation for a range of careers – from medicine to public service to business. Imagine how better prepared a doctor or business professional is if they understand the culture and customs of the individuals they are treating or dealing with. Or how a broad and deep knowledge of different world faiths and beliefs can help young people truly understand the context of events in the Middle East.

As our world becomes increasingly interdependent and we interact with more diverse groups day to day, RE is becoming ever more relevant.”
