Woodchurch High School s Religious Studies team became the second secondary school in Chester Diocese to be awarded the Gold Award for Religious Studies and only the fourth secondary school in the North West to ever be recognised with this national prestigious award at Gold level.

At the end of a June a national assessor for REQM visited the school and interviewed a pupil panel about their thoughts about Religious Studies. Mrs Burton, Subject Leader, and Mr Shelton answered questions using a portfolio of evidence for over an hour and then Rev Bannon, Senior Leadership Team link for Humanities was also interviewed.

This award is recognition of the hard work of our pupils over a number of years, as well the dedication of the team.

We would like to thank all our pupils for their ongoing efforts, and it is excellent for our subject to the acknowledged by getting the highest possible award in this national certificate.
