ISI Inspection Report, May 2013

Studying Religious Studies at Shrewsbury House gives the boys a great opportunity to develop their own thoughts, beliefs and opinions, while considering and understanding others.

The Mission Statement of the department is to ‘inspire thinking about the world in which we live’. We encourage the boys to think for themselves and explore different theories and beliefs, promoting tolerance and understanding of all, while still able to develop and express individual ideas.

The syllabus is largely based around the Christian Religion, with good opportunity to study and learn about other faiths as well. From a young age, the boys are challenged to do more than simply learn, with greater emphasis placed upon gaining an awareness of contemporary issues and ideas, and forming opinions over matters that maybe they have never considered before. Lessons will involve opportunity for discussion and debate and the working through of key issues together.

Boys will study some of the key Christian teachings based upon Biblical text and assess how they are relevant in our world today. Social, moral and ethical issues make up a good proportion of the boys' studies in their time at SHS, with these being closely linked in to the PSHE (Personal, Social & Health Education) syllabus. Studied topics are extremely wide ranging and challenging, designed to stretch all the boys in their thinking and help prepare them for life beyond the prep school world. Example topics would include: prejudice, friendship, morality, medical ethics and human rights.
