GCSE Revision Events

RS GCSE Conference

On Tuesday 6th February 2018 38 pupils attended the GCSE RS Revision Conference from four local secondary schools: The Blue School, Wadham School, Downside and Huish Episcopi. The students enabled peer revision of the syllabus by giving presentations on course topics such as Creation, Evil, Life after Death, Environment and Stewardship, Homosexuality, Abortion, War and Forgiveness, and other ethical subjects. The pupils then posed questions from these areas of study, coming up with some excellent and at times fairly challenging questions to a panel comprising Sikh, Muslim, Buddhist, Catholic, Anglican and Jewish representatives.

Migration and Refugee Day at Wells Cathedral 10th October 2016

Wells Cathedral hosted a well-received Migration and Refugee Day on Monday 10 October 2016 inviting local schools and members of the public to hear keynote speaker, Fahim Asefi, share his traumatic experience of being an ordinary boy in Afghanistan to becoming an Afghan refugee in Somerset.

Recordings of these speeches can be found on our YouTube channel. David Maggs from the Diocese of Bath and Wells and Wells Cathedral have produced a hand out that lists the local contacts and charities that are tackling these issues.
