Geography, RS and Personal Development
As well as teaching Geography, Jon-Paul also helps to coordinate our RS teaching.
Why study RS? RS unravels the philosophical & spiritual issues faced by humans across the world. Understanding faith and spirituality is central to understanding our own humanity.
What's a typical RS lesson like? In one lesson, students might be asking themselves why Jerusalem offers such a frought existence for its citizens or discussing why some people believe in a God – in another, they might find themselves drawing on their own experiences to investigate evil ... or making a Diwali lantern.
What makes for a great lesson? Excellent timing and preparation, in an environment of comfort and familiarity.
What's the best thing about teaching at Leckford Place? The friendly relationships between teachers and pupils, together with the relaxed atmosphere.
