About the subject

From years 7-9 students have an opportunity to learn about the Six World Religions.  After learning the fundamentals about these faiths, students consider various topics and consider religious as well as personal responses to these issues.  Discussion and debate are an integral part of the way that this subject is delivered.

 

At GCSE students also look at a number of themes and consider them with reference to two religious traditions.  The students are assessed by two written exams with no coursework or controlled assessment.
