Religious Education is led by Miss Burrows.

Religious Education at Bovingdon is a wonderful way to support our schools vision because it shows children that while everybody is different we all belong and we are all important. The children cover each major world religion multiple times throughout their time here and look at different aspects of it each time. RE includes wonderful trips to the churches in Bovingdon and Chesham mosque as well as a visit from a Rabbi.
