Philosophy, Religion & Ethics

In Ks3 we aim to deliver a varied approach to this discursive and engaging subject. We cover the key beliefs of not only the 6 main world faiths but many other religions. Further to this we introduce ethical and philosophical debate which challenges academically and enthuses pupils who engage critically with the world around them.

In ks4 pupils all take the Eduqas GCSE. This takes a focus on both Christianity and Judaism whilst exploring wide ranging ethical and philosophical issues.

The A-level is highly regarded by Universities and employers as a challenging course that sets up skills in research, clarity of argument and analyses.
