Milbourne Lodge is a broad and welcoming community with pupils who are members of different religious groups or members of none. The awareness of spiritual beliefs and the moral development of the individual child are considered to be of the greatest importance. Pupils have the freedom to express their opinions and to ask questions.
The Religious Studies curriculum enables pupils to gain a broad knowledge of Christianity together with the study of the main world and ancient religions. This curriculum is based on the ISEB Syllabus A. This covers the Old and New Testaments and contemporary issues together with the study of one, or more, world religions.
All Common Entrance candidates sit a Religious Studies paper. Some schools require Religious Studies in their scholarship examinations, while others include an element of the philosophical issues within their General Paper.
Daily collective worship is an important part of Milbourne life. Not only does it include a spiritual element but it also gives both staff and pupils an opportunity to come together to celebrate pupils' achievements in all areas.
