Overview

Religious Studies is more relevant today than it has ever been. Religion is all around us, affecting the way in which people in the UK, and indeed the world think and live.

You will develop skills of analysis and evaluation as you consider aspects of religion and belief, including their significance and influence. In addition, you will develop critical thinking skills, the ability to work with abstract ideas, leadership, and communication and research skills.

 

KS3: We allow students in Key stage 3 to learn about all the major world faiths. In addition we also learn about festivals and moral issues. We have a special focus on Christianity and Islam as students need to know the beliefs and practices of these two faiths for their GCSE study. Extended writing skills are used throughout to develop literacy skills.

GCSE: We have a special focus on Christianity and Islam as students need to know the beliefs and practises of these two faiths for their GCSE study. They are able to express their own opinions and build up their extended writing skills. In year 10 and year 11 students currently study the EDUQAS Religious Studies syllabus.
