Preparing children for life's horizons



Religious Education

Although our ethos at Thornlow is grounded in Christian values and practices, all faiths are warmly welcome here.

Our children learn about the world’s major religions and their influence on culture, lifestyle and history. Out of understanding comes tolerance.

Children are encouraged to think about the nature of faith and make their own sense of the big questions of life.

Parents have the right to withdraw their child from Religious Education but we hope that you will feel entirely comfortable with the way we teach it here.

Geography and History also form part of our Humanities department.
