“The unexamined life is not worth living.” – SocratesPhilosophy is the academic method of subjecting the world to rigorous scrutiny. In lessons, students do not just gain knowledge, but explore the most difficult and important questions in life. Philosophy complements humanities subjects, the arts and sciences and teaches valuable skills for study at university level. Ms Kelly Meuleman, Head of Religion, Philosophy and Ethics
