Curriculum

RS (Ethics, Philosophy and Religion)

A level RS is taught by an enthusiastic team of graduate teachers who seek to share their love of the subject with all those they teach. RS has probably changed more than any other subject since our students’ parents and carers were at school, encompassing a fascinating and diverse range of philosophical, ethical, and theological questions. Humanistic / non-religious worldviews are explored alongside religious perspectives.

Where might success in RE lead?  

A qualification in RS will take our students anywhere they might want to go! They will develop their skills of critical thinking, reasoning, empathy, tolerance, and debate. This subject is good preparation for any ‘thinking’ or ‘caring’ profession – law, medicine, teaching, public relations, journalism etc. RS students have gone on to study a very wide variety of subjects at university / college, including PPE, law, medicine, theology, ethics, and teaching / education. This subject is highly regarded by ‘Russell Group’ universities and is considered as an academic option at A level.
