Quick Reference

Most English, Welsh, and Scottish schools tend to be non‐denominational, and thus religious observance and study are not a compulsory part of the curriculum. In Scotland those which are denominational tend to be Roman Catholic. These denominational schools follow the same curriculum as non‐denominational schools and must accept students who do not follow the religion of the school. See also religious education; Scotland, education in.
