Philosophy, Ethics, Religion

Department Overview

Our core values are the promotion of the values of justice and respect for all. We tackle the most important questions in life and play a part in developing a student’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness.

We are keen to help students to become successful and independent learners through a variety of teaching and learning methods. Philosophy, Ethics, Religion and Life is no longer about people in the past but about different cultures and faiths here in Wakefield in the 21st century.

Our ethos is to actively promote the fundamental British values of truth, justice, mutual respect and tolerance. We aim to prepare students for life in modern Britain. Through our mantra of “Respect For All”, our programmes of study seek to reduce and challenge all forms of prejudice and discrimination. We encourage students to express their opinions in the true spirit of British democracy and to challenge false stereotypes.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
