REligion and World Views

Students will study the RS curriculum in Year 7, 8 and 9. They will receive one lesson per week. We are really proud of the curriculum as we have aimed to make it exciting, ambitious, and inclusive of all views, religious and non-religious worldviews.

Students are encouraged to develop their own attitudes towards world religions and synoptic themes related to religion and worldviews. Students benefit from appreciating the points of similarity and difference that exist between the world religions, and how these world religions form the basis for most world cultures. Students also benefit from developing critical thinking skills, writing skills, and research skills.

Please look at our programme of study for next year.

Phase 2

In year 9 students will have one lesson a week core provision. The curriculum is now designed in year 9 to reflect the fact that students have been supported with a knowledge rich curriculum in year 7 and year 8. Students will have developed a solid foundation of learning which will enable them to engage more effectively in evaluation for comparative and thematic study. In the first year of teaching for year 9 the lessons have been carefully designed so that students can understand some of the key religious traditions, philosophical and ethical debates surrounding this subject. It is focused on highlighting issues that are relevant in society today. It will explore these topics through a theological lense that incorporates Abrahamic and Dharma religious traditions. There are also philosophical and ethical units so that students have the opportunity to study all the disciplines within the subject.
