At the end of each term HAB girls have the opportunity to write a postcard to praise someone in our school community. They do so anonymously and 'post' them to be delivered. The idea came from one of our brilliant Year 9 girls.

Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Religion and Philosophy

Year 7

Studying Religion & Philosophy at the beginning of Year 7 ensures that students gain a broad and deep understanding of the subject by the time they pursue the compulsory GCSE Religious Studies examination course in Years 10 and 11.

Students will be taught the core beliefs within the 6 major world faiths, with a specific emphasis on the fundamental beliefs within Christianity and Islam.

Students will be taught how to analyse arguments for the existence of God, using the Ontological, Design, Experiential and Cosmological arguments. They will be able to develop an understanding of Humanist beliefs, and begin to explore theological concepts such as The Trinity and Tawhid.

Students will debate the relevance of studying Religious Studies and begin to explore the different dimensions of religion.

Students will continue to develop their critical thinking skills, as well as reflecting upon their own rites of passages and pilgrimages, whether secular or religious.

Year 9

At students move towards GSCE, Religion & Philosophy is delivered thematically, allowing students to apply their previous knowledge and concepts to core philosophical questions and contemporary issues within our society. Lessons will focus on higher level skills such as analysis, and synthesis, where students will be expected to conduct their own research and produce a mini dissertation at the end of the course.  In the final half of the Summer Term, students will start to engage with skills that will be part of their GCSE curriculum in Years 10 and 11. Students will be given evaluative questions and be expected to respond according to the assessment criteria. This will make sure that students are confident with the AQA GCSE examination process before beginning the course formally.
