Religious Education

Welcome

Religious Education at The Snaith School is a highly successful and challenging subject and boasts some of the best results in the school. In RE we challenge pupils to develop their own opinions whilst being fully aware of the reasons that people form opinions that may be vastly different from their own.

The Department is made up of: Mr G. Gardner (Head of Department), Mrs S. Kears, Miss P. Burrows and Mrs H. Yates.
