Philosophy, Religion and Ethics

What is it to be a Philosopher at Marriotts?

Our vision is to promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils. We aim to prepare students for opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life including the study of philosophy and ethics. The curriculum helps them to make moral judgments and positive and healthy lifestyle choices. The aim is to promote shared values and to challenge racism and discrimination, to encourage tolerance, and to build confidence to defend others. The ability to recognise how the diversity of religion can impact national and global issues is central to allowing students to understand and challenge stereotypes.

We encourage students to be open minded, inquisitive and reflective. The outcome is for students to leave us with a core understanding of spirituality, identity, a sense of community, tolerance, respect and acceptance of all cultures.
