Philosophy, Religion & Ethics

The Philosophy, Religion and Ethics Department at Enfield Grammar School provides our pupils the opportunity to explore ultimate questions. We investigate ideas about the nature of God, the universe, life and ethics. We teach the skills of analysis, evaluation and cross-examination. We promote respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and believes and those with none.
