Spiritual Reflection is the title given to the Religious Education programme followed by all students, with a 50 minute lesson each week.
The starting question for each student on the course is: ‘what kind of person would I like to become?’ Throughout the course, students will have an opportunity to reflect on a range of virtues and values, case studies of such virtues in practice as well as role models to emulate. Students are able to achieve the Agored Cymru Level 3 Extended Award in Religious Education on successful completion of the course. This is an additional qualification recognised by Qualifications Wales.
Our 2020 Diocesan Inspection commented:
It is an imaginative well-designed course now well into its second year. Inspectors confirm that it stimulates questioning and debate and introduces key beliefs, teachings and practices of the Catholic Church and other faiths.
Successful Candidates will gain an additional 8 UCAS Tariff Points which may help secure the University course of their choice.
