Religious Studies aims to introduce pupils to the challenging and varied nature of religion and helps them to explore questions about the meaning of life. Religious Studies also enables pupils to recognise and appreciate the contribution of religion in the formation of beliefs and behaviour, which is vital in understanding the growth and development of our culture and society.
Pupils will be involved in a thematic study of some central questions and issues in human life and experience. Pupils will explore the relevance of religious beliefs, practices, values and traditions to these questions and issues. The course relates to many contemporary issues that can be found throughout the media.
Courses: GCSE (WJEC)
Studying the full course GCSE will give you a GCSE and a half, whereas statutory RS will give you a short course GCSE.
The GCSE course looks at a wide variety of issues that are relevant to everybody's lives from the view point of Christianity and Judaism. We study topics of sex before marriage, test tube babies, love and marriage, divorce, abortion and euthanasia, crime and punishment, war and peace, the death penalty, human rights and many issues which are not only relevant, but are based on issues regularly reported in the media.
