Mr Lindo

Head of Department

I Completed a BA (Hons) Degree in Applied Theology from University of Chester followed by a PGCE from the University of Warwick. I started teaching at Shireland in 2015 and became Head of Religious Studies in 2020. I am passionate about students engaging with different worldviews/ belief systems and having the opportunity to reflect on their own beliefs. I believe the need for high quality religious study is vital in a highly complex, global society where students will likely encounter a myriad of viewpoints different to their own.
