Virtual Open Evening – 2020
Video 8 – RE
The R.E Department at Seaham High School focus on the big questions, as befits the study of Belief Systems and Faith, but in a way that has practical application in the day to day of modern life.
Students learn through lively debate and engaging discussion through a range of subjects that succeed in capturing the essence of our school motto – Engaging Minds and Broadening Horizons. Through learning about the wider world beyond their doorstep, our students are better equipped to deal with a broad spectrum of topics, and apply their understanding to other areas of their lives.
Our students learn to be thoughtful, tolerant and respectful of others. They are able to explore complex moral and theological issues with empathy, thoughtfulness and critical analysis. They will encourage and support others in their exploration of these issues.
This applied knowledge fits in with our school values, of kindness, integrity and pride, and equips them to go out into the world with a broad view of where life can take them.
Don’t take our word for it though, meet Hannah Griffiths, one of our students, and hear what she has to say.
Remember if you’re playing along with our ‘Guess Who’ contest, there’s a staff member or red herring lurking in the video, as well as one of our 6Rs.
