Religious Studies

Please see the letter to year 10 and 11 parents to opt into the GCSE course at the bottom of the page.

Aims and ambitions:

Our GCSE covers both Buddhism and Christianity and four contemporary ethical themes so that our students have a diverse choice of intriguing subjects to explore. Students will be challenged with questions about belief, values, meaning, purpose and truth, enabling them to develop their own attitudes towards religious and moral issues. Students will also gain an appreciation of how religion, philosophy and ethics form the basis of our culture. They will develop analytical and critical thinking skills, the ability to work with abstract ideas, leadership and research skills. All these skills will help prepare them for further study in all P16 pathways and help them consider a wide range of moral issues in the modern world.
