Religious Studies is approached through enquiry, critical thinking and reflection. Students are encouraged to engage with philosophical questions and to ponder different responses which enable each student to develop their own personal values, opinions and attitudes.
At KS3, Religious Studies is embedded into Ethics, which incorporates elements of PSHE. The curriculum has been devised to develop a broader and deeper understanding of beliefs and ideas and their impact upon society. Students will study religious beliefs of Buddhists, Christians, Jews and Muslims.
At GCSE students follow AQA’s Religious Studies course, focusing on Christianity and Islam and themes including Peace & Conflict and Human Rights & Social Justice.
