Religion and Philosophy

Religion and Philosophy (RP) at Tiffin is an established, popular and successful subject that provides an academic curriculum that is designed to stretch and challenge all students.

The Department not only plays a central role in our student’s social, moral, spiritual and cultural development (SMSC), it is also essential to the School’s aims to promote critical, reflective, inclusive and empathetic thought across the curriculum. In this, the Department seeks not only to inform but also assist character formation. It has been recognised by The Good Schools Guide, other pedagogical bodies and notable tertiary academic specialists as a unique and leading department.

Our curriculum provides students with the opportunity to freely inquire into a rich horizon of ideas that extend across the humanities, sciences and arts. It has been primarily designed to enhance our student’s ‘cultural capital’ and to facilitate their potential to become alert, responsible & purposive British, European and global citizens. We believe they leave the Department with a sophisticated knowledge and understanding of
themselves and others, in addition to an advanced set of technical academic and vocational tools.
