RE

The River School is committed to developing the character of our students so that they are sufficiently confident in their own beliefs and values, that they can respect the religious and cultural differences of others, and contribute to a cohesive and compassionate society. This will mean that talk of spiritual ideology and biblical worldview will not just be restricted to RE lessons and Assemblies.
