Religious Education

Welcome to the RE Department


Religious Education at Altrincham College aims to ‘prepare students for active citizenship in a diverse and rapidly changing world’.

 RE is taught to all students at Key Stage 3 in accordance with the ‘Trafford Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education’. For those students who have shown aptitude and interest in the subject this can be enhanced by further study at Key Stage 4.

Throughout their study of RE at Altrincham College, students develop their knowledge and understanding of the principal religions and world views represented in Great Britain and in Trafford. This enables students to develop respect for other people, their beliefs and lifestyles and offers them the opportunity to explore their own beliefs, values and ideals in light of their learning.

The RE curriculum at Altrincham College provokes challenging questions about the meaning and purpose of life, belief in God, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human. Exploration of these ‘Ultimate Questions’ enables students to develop a plethora of skills ranging from communication and reflective skills through to analysis and evaluation, all of which are invaluable on a personal level and highly desirable to employers.
