Religious & Moral Education


  • Ms E. Thomson


We offer pupils the opportunity to develop knowledge and understanding of Religion and Morality through the study of different World Religions and Moral Issues. We employ a range of teaching methods including direct teacher led lessons, group work, ICT, investigation, discussion and debate. Pupils also have the opportunity to engage with visiting speakers and contribute to their local community through the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative.



We have one well equipped classroom and the Social Subjects base for staff and pupil work.

Congratulations to the Stromness Academy volleyball teams who took part in the Scottish Volleyball Association S4/5/6 Festival in Aberdeen today. Our girls A team came overall second, our B team came fourth and our boys team came 5th. All players entered into the spirit of the tournament, displaying great sportsmanship when playing and refereeing and performance improved throughout the day. A fabulous effort from all. Thanks go to Northlink for their continued sponsorship and to the SVA for organising the tournament to fit in with our ferry times 😊 See MoreSee Less
