Headteacher's Welcome Message
I would like to welcome you to Audenshaw School's Website. I hope that you enjoy visiting it and by doing so will gain a clearer idea of all that goes on within the school whether this is academic achievements, our wide range of extra-curricular activities on offer or our relationships with the wider local and global communities. I strongly believe that it is vital to celebrate the successes of our school and have designed the website to highlight these key areas. The school has always and will always place huge emphasis on academic achievement. We have a long and proud tradition of academic success and are proud of our standing within the community and also what our students go on to achieve after they leave the school. I hope that our traditional yet forward thinking ethos has been reflected in the stories and images on the pages of our website.

KS3 Religious Ed

Religious Education at Audenshaw is forward thinking, relevant and challenging. The Religious Education department are passionate about provoking meaningful dialogue about the ultimate meaning and purpose of life, beliefs about God, the self and the nature of reality, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human.

The Religious Education department is wholly committed to developing the knowledge and understanding of all students, regardless of ability, gender, race or religious persuasion. Students are taught by highly qualified and experienced specialist teachers and are offered opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development. The main aim of the department is to challenge students to reflect on issues of truth, belief, faith and ethics; leading to the ability to analyse, interpret and to communicate their responses.

The department is dedicated to enabling students to develop their sense of identity and belonging. It encourages students to flourish individually within their communities and as citizens in a pluralistic society and global community. The department facilitates student’s understanding of the important role Religious Education plays preparing them for adult life, employment and lifelong learning. It enables students to develop respect for and sensitivity to others, in particular those whose faiths and beliefs are different from their own. It promotes discernment and enables students to combat prejudice. The Religious Education department has a long record of outstanding GCSE and A level results and strives to maintain a stimulating and engaging learning experience for all.
