Religions of the World

Religious Education

At English Martyrs School our children learn to understand all religions practiced around the world such as Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism, Christianity, and much more. We do this by visiting the many temples around the capital that are here to allow those that embrace these religions to pray and reflect.

Here are some accounts of these visits.


A pilgrimage to Aylesford

Year 6 pupils went on a pilgrimage to Aylesford where they had an opportunity for Reconciliation, Mass and reflected on the Rosary during the Rosary walk.  We were very fortunate to have Fr Louis to guide the children and staff on our spiritual journey.

Visit to the South London Liberal Synagogue

To celebrate Judaism Week a Rabbi from the South London Liberal Synagogue visited the school and conducted an assembly. He shared many interesting facts about practising the Jewish faith and showed us an array of symbolic artefacts. We finished the assembly singing ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’ in Hebrew.
