We take pride in developing ambitious, bright and confident young people.

he Religious Studies Department encourages girls to understand the ways in which different religious beliefs and values are expressed and to communicate their own ideas about religion within a sound moral framework. Girls feel secure to express their own opinions and join in general discussion. At Abbot’s Hill, all girls study Religious Studies in Years 7-11 and take a short course GCSE. Pupils can also opt to study for a full course GCSE. The department has access to comprehensive resources, including an ICT room, providing an excellent environment in which to teach.
