All participate in the programme in their first two years at Mill Hill. It aims both to help students gain an understanding of the religious landscape in which they live, and to enable them to grow and articulate their own spiritual lives.
The course presents students with many of the different viewpoints from which religion can be studied – philosophical, historical, literary, ethical, liturgical and mystical. By providing a rich menu and a variety of approaches, it aims to engage students of diverse religious backgrounds or none with questions and experiences that are both ancient and modern.
The course aims to help students grow in confidence and poise in dealing with profound human and theological questions, in a way that is respectful both to the Christian foundation of the school and to the diversity of traditions in which students’ lives are set.
