Inspiring a love of learning

“Inspiring a love of learning”

‘The lessons and the teachers are really good and I’ve made so many more friends since starting the sixth form’ Emily, Year 12

‘I’ve been able to achieve a level of independence but still rely on the support of staff I know when I’ve needed it’ Beth, Year 13

‘To begin with I was nervous about meeting new people but everyone has been welcoming. The subjects I chose are right for me and the teachers are helpful. Coming here was the right decision’ A new student who started in Yr 12

“I taught in several schools and I was only blessed with sons but I firmly believe that if I had a daughter I would want her to go to this school because I am aware at first hand of the dedication of all of its staff to the care and education of the girls. This school does realise that it is precious cargo that it carries.” A former teacher

Year 7

Local Communities of Faith – Students focus on how religion is represented and practised in Beverley and the surrounding area.

Beliefs and Belonging – a unit considering how religious practices, in particular how rites of passage can engender a sense of morality, belonging and identity.

Divine Intervention – a unit based on philosophy. Students will consider some of the Big Questions in life such as Does God Exist? Does it Matter if God exists? 


Year 8

Vision, values and purpose.

The focus is on how ideas for the future, our values and sense of purpose affect lives. We study the meaning of these terms and consider how these ideas affected religious figures and world leaders such as Jesus, Martin Luther King, Desmond Tutu and Aung San Suu Kyi.


Sacred Earth.

This unit considers the effects our lives have on planet Earth. We find out religious beliefs and scientific theories about creation and investigate why religions think it is important to look after the planet and its inhabitants.


Communicating Belief.

This unit begins with looking at religious authority and makes a comparison of Jewish and Islamic authorities in the form of holy books and prophets. We then consider how the media portrays religion and considers the advantages and disadvantages of this. The focus here is on Christianity in comedy and Islam in the news.


Year 9

Human Rights, Human Wrongs.

The focus in this unit is the on the importance of Human Rights and the consequences when Human Rights are denied. There is a study of the Holocaust, a personal account of a concentration camp and an evaluation of the importance of such accounts. We then look at the development of Human Rights including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and contemporary human rights abuses.
