The Royal School has a vibrant theological community and its very own Chapel. The RS department has a strong philosophy department with exciting debates on the existence of God, the Inconsistent Triad and Ontological Argument. We delve into Christianity and have Bible study.   

Religious studies in KS3 at The Royal in Christianity and we look closely at the history of Christianity and how it approaches modern day themes of morality such as sexuality and whether heaven and hell exist. The course also examines other religions and their approach to life after death and the role of paranormal activity.
