Let us join together across denominations, religions and cultures to make a habit of empathy and reach out to those in need- Barack Obama 

At Higher Openshaw Community School, we are so proud of our religious and cultural diversity. We believe in developing a positive attitude and understanding of one an other and all religions. We hope to enthuse, inspire and educate young people by giving pupils the opportunity to learn and reflect about religious experiences that different people have had over time. Our school follow the recommended Manchester Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education 2022-2027.

Sensitive topics like the existence of God, life after death and the meaning of life, enable the pupils to think beyond their normal daily experiences. Our school is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious domination. The school follows a multi-faith approach and acknowledges and respects that some pupils may not have any religious affiliation at all.
