A Brief Introduction to the RS Department
Religious Studies at The Telford Priory School is studied for one hour a week at KS3 and three hours over two weeks for KS4. It is essential for young people to have an awareness of themselves and others in society, whether we are religious or non-religious. We want students to have the opportunity to grow as individuals and become more confident, understanding, open minded and empathetic citizens in the ever-growing multicultural world in which we live in.
