Religious Studies

A deep understanding of religious ideas, rational thinking and moral actions are key to our students’ ability to thrive in a challenging and changing world. In Philosophy, Religion and Ethics, girls are immersed in both ancient religious traditions and contemporary moral debates. They learn what it means to be a member of a faith community.

Students visit religious communities around North London, meeting believers and engaging with a range of perspectives on the world. In Philosophy and Ethics, students are introduced to critical thinking, forming and defending arguments and seeking to identify flaws in their own reasoning and that of others. Students will look in detail at many moral issues, including assisted dying; gender and sexuality; medical ethics; and environmental ethics.
